Transcriptions are compared to translations of literary works and have played an important role in creating rewarding new performance opportunities throughout history. This paper examines three new transcriptions completed by the author for horn, cello, and piano: the Trio in B-flat major, Opus 11 by Ludwig van Beethoven, the Trio in A minor, Opus 114 by Johannes Brahms, and the Trio Pathétique by Mikhail Ivanovich Glinka. The intention of these transcriptions is to create music for a particular trio (horn, cello, and piano) that has little original repertoire and to expand the repertoire of music for horn, one string instrument, and piano.
The concentration on music for clarinet, cello or bassoon, and piano in this research project stems from the vocal nature of the writing for the clarinet by Brahms, Beethoven, and Glinka, which suits the horn extremely well. The use of range and technical facility and color of these works are within the skill set of the advanced modern hornist. It is out of this selection of music that material was found suitable for the horn. The performance suggestions included in this project may serve as a guide to performing these transcriptions on horn; however, study of the original works is suggested to have an informed perspective of the intentions of the composer. In addition, this paper will examine current philosophical thought on the aesthetics of transcriptions and the role transcriptions have played throughout the development of horn literature.
