Another “experimental” transcription, another that I did out of curiosity spawned from the title and without a reference recording of the original.

This is a series of 6 lieders with piano accompaniment; the titles are all women names, with the exception of the outer pieces (Prolog, Epilog). My transcriptions are quite literal without adding anything to the original (well, *almost* nothing), in contrast to Grieg’s own wonderful transcriptions of his own lieders (he didn’t transcribe these ones though).

I recommend to start listening with the transcriptions of middle pieces (Ragnhild, Ingebjord, Ragna) – those that turned out “better” in my opinion. The result on the outer pieces is still a bit awkward at first listening, albeit I did put a lot of effort in tuning the chords, arpeggios etc.
