This page contains my orchestrations from piano and quartet scores. I have tried to do the work in an appropriate style. Where the information is available I have used the right instrumentation or the instrumentation of a piece by the same composer at the same period for which the full score has survived. I have restricted myself to the instruments of the period. For example, where a piece was written for natural brass instruments or a trumpet in F, I have only used notes available to those instruments. Where surviving scores indicate the normal range a composer uses for an instrument, I have stuck to those. Where it is possible to determine a composer's habitual way of scoring for an instrument, I have tried to do the same. Where none of this was possible, I have guessed, hopefully with a bit of intelligence.
