Transforming the Classical Guitar: Expanding horizons through transcriptions and arrangements for guitar quartet.

Supervisors

Summary

My research examines the contributing role of the main transcribers in five leading guitar quartets over the last fifty years. Their transcription principles and processes are examined through the lens of cultural translation. The information gathered through these interviews will inform the creation of a set of transcriptions for guitars in ensemble.
