Abstract

This document provides a transcription for wind symphony of Taras Bulba: Rhapsody for Orchestra by Leos Janacek. A brief historical background of Leos Janacek is presented including the influence of Russophilism on many of his musical compositions. Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol's novella is comparatively placed alongside the programmatic storyline of the rhapsody of Taras Bulba upon which this piece is based. Within this framework, differing views of musical symbolism are elucidated. The defense of transcriptions, criteria for selection of pieces, and problems associated with the transcription process are examined along with the techniques utilized in the solution of said problems within the context of this transcription.
