9781937864996: Orchestral Transcriptions for Solo Harp

Harp transcriptions of Romantic Orchestral repertoire, prepared by Dr. Erin Freund. - Wagner: Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde - Tchaikovsky: Panorama and Waltz from Sleeping Beauty - Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet Overture-fantasia Transcriptions are crucial to the harp's repertoire. They can make something old, new again. They can surprise a listener. The right arrangements can take a huge orchestral composition and turn it into an equally powerful, yet intimate and personal encounter. Romantic transcriptions require some ingenuity, not only to accommodate polyphonic lines and intense chromaticism, but also to retain and convey the essence of the music. Ultimately, I wish to honor the original composers by retaining the integrity of the original compositions, while also making them sound as though they had always been intended for the harp.
