I am writing my first set of transcriptions and arrangements for piano. They are virtuoso adaptations of rare orchestral works. It's not exactly "composing", but it still poses a creative and intellectual challenge. Do any of you know of any books that could be of help? I am particularly eager to learn how other musicians go about the process of writing a virtuoso piano transcription/arrangement.

try comparing between scores of the original works and their piano transcriptions. my favourite transcriptions are the schubert/liszt schwanengesang.
