Organ transcriptions—pieces written for other instruments, but played on the organ—are making a comeback in the organ world … and they serve as an integral component of the Longwood Gardens International Organ Competition.
Join us for this insightful panel discussion led by a selection of our esteemed 2023 Longwood Gardens International Organ Competition judges and learn the history of organ transcriptions, why this once-frowned-upon trend is becoming popular once more, and how the use of transcriptions within the Longwood Gardens International Organ Competition’s repertoire helps set our competition apart.
