Extreme Transcription

Extreme Transcription: Full symphony orchestra works that have been transcribed for chamber orchestra

Extreme Transcription calls for expanding the reach of the classical music canon by transcribing some of the great symphony orchestra repertory for chamber orchestra and proves the viability of this process by presenting three masterworks from the German, French, and Russian schools, representing almost 1000 pages of scores and parts.  Extreme Transcription documents and enumerates the methodologies and modalities developed for achieving this transcription process.

The book, Extreme Transcription, will be published soon.
