TRANSCRIPTIONS

“The process of making a transcription is akin to the most consuming and passionate process of taming a wild animal. You never know if it will follow you completely, if you would be able to domesticate it and conquer its unpredictable character. The same is true with a “wild” piece of music. You have to discover an approach to it before you can tell that it will let you possess it – meaning that all of its stunning, heartbreaking and seemingly impossible episodes would let you portray them on the keyboard. And when you finally find that all of it is possible, you are the happiest creature in the world.”
