Description: You know already that Grainger was in inveterate transcriber so you won't be surprised to see transcriptions for wind orchestra of existing works by other composers, although the very early pieces from the 14th century might raise an eyebrow. Most of these transcriptions were made for the wind orchestra at Interlochen where Grainger taught from 1937-44 and six are first recordings in these versions.
