Transcriptions Baroque : A journey through the art of the Baroque Concerto
Transcription has formed an integral part of musical development across the centuries. Composers and performers have gained an intimate knowledge of compositional style from transcriptions, while adding to the collection of music available for performance on their instrument.
Recorded in the beautiful Trinity College Chapel, and featuring trumpeter, Anthony Pope (Orchestra Victoria) and Perth-based organist, Dominic Perissinotto, Transcriptions Baroque presents eight works that take you on a journey through the art of the concerto in the Baroque period. Four of these pieces are performed on trumpet with the orchestral part arranged for the organ. The remainder were transcribed for solo organ by renowned organists of their day.
