Transcription Teaser

Posted in Music by Robert Henry

From the Feb 2011 Gramophone Magazine review: “Henry saves his most rapturous and texturally refined playing for his own transcription of Chet Atkins’ Waltz for the Lonely.  If you ever wanted to know what “Nashville Meets Godowsky” sounds like, savour this absolutely enchanting track, as I did about a dozen times before writing this review!”

Many people have been asking when my transcription of Waltz for the Lonely, by Chet Atkins, will be published.  The answer is: very soon!

To whet your appetite, here is a page from the transcription, along with some revisions I’ve sent to Philip.

This transcription, along with the world premiere recording of Alexei Stanchinsky’s forgotten Nocturne from 1907, can be found on my debut recording, “Twelve Nocturnes and a Waltz.”
