According to tradition transcribed music is an important part of the repertoar for the classical guitar. Baroque music as well as compositions from the Spanish national romantic era are the two most important sources for transcriptions. My research is aimed at finding answers concerning the relevance of transcribing as well as playing different styles of music on the guitar. Are there any basic rules how these transcriptions should be made? I have chosen to take a closer look at the music of J S Bach as a representative of the baroque period because of the great legacy of his music being played on guitar and lute. How to translate the lute music for guitar is the next step. Then follows a chapter about Fransisco Tarréga who sets the standard for modern transcribing for the guitar and about his heir Andrés Segovia. The information is supplemented by an interview of two persons with great experience and knowledge within this subject. I have analyzed and studied transcriptions using a lot of extracts from music scores to be able to illustrate the results in an easy accessible manner. I have also found hints in how to transcribe for the classical guitar looking at culture and rules of interpretation. (Less)
