MetadataShow full item record
This document is a study of how the pipe organ relates to the wind band and the possibilities of transcribing organ works for band. The document includes material on how the pipe organ relates mechanically to the wind band instruments and a comparison of various organ stops and wind instruments that have similar timbres. The relationships that are established from this comparison are used to create an original transcription for wind band of Charles-Marie Widor’s Symphony No. 5 in F Minor. A conductor’s guide is included to aid in the rehearsal and performance of the transcription as well as provide insight to the thought process behind the wind band orchestration.
