DAVID JOHNSTONE - HIS ARRANGEMENTS AND TRANSCRIPTIONS
This section includes all kinds of arrangements and transcriptions by David Johnstone, and in some cases he also participates as a cellist. However, in many other cases Johnstone does not know the performers personally, as they come from many different countries. This is a growing list, and in some pieces there is more than one recording available. All are welcome! We do not always learn of these recordings; for this, you are welcome to write in the ‘Contact’ section and make mention of your performance (if possible on You Tube). In this list we try to give an alphabetical list by composer name, and at the end (those starting with “z-”) pieces without a composer name or where the title alone is better known.
If you would like to send a comment as a listener (hopefully positive!) about any piece, or about the web in general, simply visit the “Contact” section and leave a message with the details - we’d be happy to hear from you!
ENJOY THE MUSIC!
