I love transcriptions. They offer a new and ear-catching timbral view of the old warhorses, and a new kick to the old routine. Sometimes transcriptions can even be illuminating, and reveal things about the composition that weren’t apparent in the original, especially in the keyboard works of Bach, where assigning widely differentiated timbres to the different voices brings out the contrapuntal writing. As the Goldberg Variations, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons has been a popular candidate for transcriptions.
