"My Favourite Things" transcribed for piano by Stephen Hough
« on: October 19, 2012, 01:12:10 PM »
I recently came across this Stephen Hough's piano solo transcription of "My favourite things" from the movie "The Sound of Music". I found both the transcription and the performance of Stephen Hough very interesting and and decided to post it here as I thought that maybe others in the forum would like it.
Enjoy and Comment!

Ooooh, I do like that.  :D

3 staves, though, pushes it to the back of my list of things to do. One has to approach these things from principle.
