Opera Transcriptions: La Rondine, Turandot, Madama Butterfly In 1989, I began a series of opera transcriptions for piano in response to Michael Finnissy's Verdi Transcriptions, a work which I greatly admire. The three Puccini transcriptions were written at the request of pianists Yvar Mikhashoff and Anthony de Mare, who selected the arias which serve as the basis of these short pieces: "La Canzone di Doretta", from La Rondine, "Nessun dorma", from Turandot, and "Tu, tu, piccolo iddio" from Madama Butterfly. Opera Transcriptions: La Rondine was first performed by Anthony de Mare at New Music Concerts in Toronto in 1992, Turandot was given its first performance in Ghent, Belgium by Anthony de Mare, and Madama Butterfly was first performed by Yvar Mikhashoff at the tenth Almeida Festival in London, UK.
