    Sousa on Piano

    I while back I got bored. So I wrote these piano transcriptions for sousa marches. I tried my best to keep my transcriptions as faithful to the origonal as posible, but most piano players only have 10 fingers so you know how that goes. Please enjoy.

    Hello Mike,
    I enjoyed your renditions of both Sousa marches, particularly the S & S. They sound fine on piano, the only comment I would make is that the dynamic range of the playback is very wide. Turning the volume up for the quiter passages, I had to turn it down for the loud sections - but this is easily rectified.
    Thanks for posting - well done.

    I usually just add half a pianist when I run into that
    problem, Mike.

    Very able transcriptions! These came out quite well.
    And that's harder to do (as you probably found out)
    than one might think at first sight.

    The one comment I'd make, as a pianist, maybe a bit
    less reverb in the renderings. These are solid trans-
    criptions, very well performed; but I think a little
    more crispness in the room would benefit them.

    My best,
