Abstract

Many great composers did not write a single note for the guitar, but guitarists have been able to perform their music through arrangements. I will identify effective and ineffective arrangement techniques in six piano works arranged for solo guitar. Solo piano works were chosen for this paper to allow for a more practical, thorough, and focused discussion of arranging techniques.

In addition to the analyses, I have also interviewed professional classical guitarists and arrangers Andrew Zohn, William Kanengiser, and Frank Koonce. Their numerous arrangements have enriched the guitar repertoire, and their insight provides a complementary perspective to my analyses. The full transcripts of the interviews are found at the end of the document.
