Yes, I have. I wasn't very convinced by the first page if I'm going to be honest.

Indeed. It was a piece I underestimated at first, but someone persuaded me to take a second look and it grew on me...


I'll bear that in mind. I like the second and third pages, but thought the first page was too thin.

Thank you for sharing your opinion, Andrew.

Sometimes I like pianistic or sonic aspects of the transcription and it's fun to play and learn; on other occasions I'll select one because it presents interesting technical challenges.

It's guessable from your choices with which we got acquainted through your postings :) My favorite transcriptions are in most cases those from my favorite pieces written for other instruments or instrumentations. Maybe this resulted partly from the fact that I'm not so virtuosic as you :roll:

Rossini on Wagner springs to mind "Wagner has great moments.. and terrible quarter hours".

Totally agreed :lol:
