Comment

Much like project [tbpt57] I wasn’t ready to transcribe the whole quartet but I liked the work and wanted to do at least part of it, so I chose the Scherzo. Also I found out the Nocturne has already been transcribed and available on YouTube so there was no need for me to reinvent the wheel. I also found the Allegro transcribed for piano on IMSLP but it is incomplete – it’s a reduction, more than a transcription.

Trivia

Projects tbpt57 and tbpt75 (5 – 7 <-> 7 – 5) are both Scherzo movements from String Quartets.
