The Arranged Connection

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart--contemplating Bach?

 

Why would one composer re-work a piece written by another?

Sometimes it’s to make an orchestral work more widely accessible by downsizing it for a chamber ensemble—or perhaps a piano soloist. Or transforming a solo or chamber work to benefit from the impact of a full orchestra.

In this hour, a variety of works re-imagined by Bach, Beethoven, Liszt, Ravel, Respighi and more.
