Description: The dates and exact circumstances of preparing these transcriptions remain unclear. It is known that Maciejewski, at the time as well-known as a composer as he was as a pianist, produced most of them in Sweden at the beginning of the 1940's. They were meant for performance during a series of concerts in Gothenburg and Stockholm, where Maciejewski played in a duo with the English pianist Martin Penny or the Russian Alex Portnoff.
