Opus Transcribisticum

This database is dedicated to all music lovers who enjoy this long disregarded, little valued and almost forgotten musical genre.
Its purpose is to preserve the names of many musicians who were often highly regarded in their times as composers, instrumentalists, professors or simply as music teachers and who with their adaptations or arrangements introduced the works of the great masters to a wider public in times lacking the possibilities of electronic media.
It is understood that such a database can never be complete but I would like to include as many arrangements as possible.
To do so I need your help.
I am aware of the fact that my selection and the choices I have made are rather subjective, this, however, should not keep you from suggesting pieces you believe are important and should be included in the list.

I included all adaptations of music pieces for piano solo, piano duet, six hands and two or more pianos.
NOT included are
- improvisations
- variations
- shortened or simplified pieces
- piano concertos for two pianos

I am aware that here also the criteria applied are chosen rather arbitrarily, even more so as sharp lines cannot be drawn.

I would like to invite all of you who are interested to help me with this database by submitting new titles, corrections and above all information about the dates of birth and death of the arrangers.
The fact that the terminology of the database is mostly in German should not be a problem.
Please send all information, advice and suggestions for ways of improving the list to

Lmadlener@t-online.de

All contributions are welcome and will be included as far as possible. Thank you very much.

PLEASE NOTE: This database is free for all music lovers but may not be used for commercial purposes.
