The Pianist’s Guide to Transcrip-tions,
Arrange-ments, and Paraphrases

Maurice Hinson

Lists transcriptions for piano from orchestral and other compositions, more than 2,000 works in all.

"... a thorough summary of an important body of music written by a musician of extraordinary, perhaps unrivaled knowledge of the repertory."

—American Music Teacher

Some of the most celebrated composers—Beethoven, Brahms, Busoni, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, and Ravel—prepared piano transcriptions of some of their own works, as well as those of other composers. Maurice Hinson has selected, from the myriads of transcriptions now in existence, more than 2,000 such works of real musical worth.

The Pianist’s Guide to Transcriptions, Arrangements, and
Paraphrases describes pieces for solo piano, duet, and two pianos, as well as outstanding transcriptions for one hand. Most of them are written for piano(s) alone, but a considerable number are scored for piano(s) and a small instrumental ensemble or a full orchestra.

Thanks to the organization of this volume, the user can see at a glance the various transcriptions that have been made of a particular composition (say, a Schubert song) and also become aware of the breadth of a particular transcriber’s output (as in the case of the prodigiously prolific Liszt).

Maurice Hinson, Senior Professor Emeritus of Piano at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, was founding editor of the Journal of the American
Liszt Society and is a contributor to the New Grove Dictionary of American Music. He is known for his many articles, videos, and lecture recitals, especially those on early American piano music. He is author of several books on piano literature, including the indispensable Guide to the
Pianist’s Repertoire, 3rd edition (Indiana University
Press).

Editorial Reviews

American Music Teacher
This is a thorough summary of an important body of music written by a musician of extraordinary, perhaps unrivaled knowledge of the repertory.
Booknews
Argues that Piaget's theses could not describe the way children think, or the way in which their thinking develops. Sugarman suggests alternative lines of inquiry for a clearer understanding of children's mental life, and the origins of adult thought. The volume includes works for solo piano, duet, and two pianos, as well as outstanding transcriptions for one hand. Most are written for piano(s) alone, but a considerable number are scored for piano(s) and a small instrumental ensemble or a full orchestra. In an alphabetic listing of composers, these works are described under the name of the original composer, and cross-references appear under the name of the transcriber. Annotation c.
