Did I ever mention that my Aunt made crazy quilts to donate to the insane asylum? She figured crazy people shouldn't have to deal with regular quilts.

Speaking of Rachmaninoff, I get annoyed when people transcribe his vocalese for orchestra.The point of vocalese is that it be sung.smiley - steam

Funny you should say that. What I linked to was "Rhapsody over a Theme by Paganini" - which proves he wasn't a stranger to change other peoples music to his own taste smiley - biggrin

I know very little about this - his was just the first name that sprang to my mind when I needed the name of a musician smiley - biggrin

Changing other people's music to suit your taste is a time-honored tradition. Usually, the changed version is attributed to the artist who does the changing, not the composer of the original piece. Transcriptions are usually welcome, provided that they make musical sense. With pieces by Bach, for instance, there are numerous cases in which Bach seems to have transcribed his own pieces for various different instruments or instrument combinations. The rule is, any instrument that has the range will do nicely. smiley - smiley

I've heard lots of instrumental music that took operatic arias and assigned the vocal line to an instrument. Usually the title warns you that no singing will be involved. I don't have a problem with that, as long as the title is accurate.

The title "Vocalese" strongly indicates that there will be singing.
I feel cheated if there isn't any. smiley - sadface But it's one of my pet peeves. The world isn't about to end because of it. smiley - smiley

I didn't go to see the latest remake of "Les Miserables" after I was warned there would be some singing involved smiley - biggrin
