27 Richard Strauss on transcribing his works for military bands “I agree … that my tone poem Tod und Verklärung is successful in an arrangement for military bands. I have personally attended or conducted several such performances of my symphonic works, for instance, in Naples, Barcelona or Venice. They are very suitable for wind bands, provided that the arrangements are made by experts and played with a sufficient number of instruments.” –Strauss to an unknown correspondent (23 June 1936) [published in Eugen Brixel, “Original Band Compositions vs. Transcriptions,” Journal of the World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles 4 (1997): 8, 18 (facsimile)]
