“This is a new transcription of a work rarely performed on the guitar. I was inspired to make it by Fabio Zanon's magnificent transcription and recording. But his edition is far too difficult for me and many other players, but I have found that by reverting to the original key an easier, for me, version is possible. I have found it possible to be surprisingly faithful to the original. I have used cross string fingering for most of the trills, e.g. slurring a from 2nd to 3rd string followed by m 2nd to 3rd string followed by i 2nd to 3rd string. I haven't seen this technique written down, but I can't play it any other way - there's an amateur for you! But someone has recently told me of a well known professional who sometimes does something similar.
Herewith I submit a beautifully engraved file. I am extremely grateful to Bernhard Heimann for offering to do this engraving for me”.

I had a look at this piece myself a while back, using the copy available at imslp.org so I was able to look through your version and see how you had done it. It's one of those pieces that can be arranged with very little modification, apart from changing the octave of one or other voices in some sections and I was interested to see that though you had made one or two different decisions our arrangements are much the same.
Incidentally the cross string trill method you mention was demonstrated at the West Dean course this year. I can't remember who mentioned it, it may have been Gary Ryan or Stephen Gordon and is was said that Ida Presti had used this technique.

A VERY VERY BIG THANKYOU TO POGMOOR FOR NOTIFYING ME OF SOME SMALL ERRORS WHICH I CORRECTED – THEY ARE HISTORY NOW SO I'VE NOT CLUTTERED THE FORUM WITH THE DETAILS. I THANK HIM TOO FOR HIS KIND COMMENT ”This looks very nicely done” ON MY TRANSCRIPTION.

Very nice transcription. A little difficult for me to play, but a worthwhile addition to my "must practice" pieces!
