Examples of frequent requests include:

  • Arranging a mixed-voice work for upper voices
  • Producing an orchestral accompaniment for a work which currently only has a piano accompaniment
  • Transcribing a work originally for a certain instrument for another instrument, e.g. from violin to viola
