A transcription of Jean Francais's L'Horloge De Flore for solo oboe and organ (Four Hands)
The orchestral accompaniment of Jean Francaix’s L’ horloge de flore (The Flower Clock), a concerto for solo oboe and orchestra, was arranged for organ (four hands). Resource material used in the arrangement was derived from the orchestra score, the solo part and the piano reduction. Due to the complexity of solo voices in the score, two performers at one organ console are required. In order to achieve the most effective organ registrations, the transcription is best realized on a large Romantic symphonic organ. The commentary that accompanies the score gives a brief performing history of the orchestral version and the piano reduction. Performance difficulties encountered in the piano reduction are discussed as they relate to the need for an organ version. Problems in the transcription process are also discussed along with formal and compositional aspects of the concerto.
