Summary In order to authentically perform the Khachaturian Flute Concerto, the flutist must "think like a violinist" to stay loyal to the composer's intent, as the composition was originally scored for the violin, and later transcribed for flute by legendary flutist, Jean Pierre Rampal. A mature understanding of both instruments and how they respond to the piece is required of the flutist. The flutist is responsible to make decisions in order to perform the concerto in the most suitable way possible. This thesis begins with a brief overview of Aram Khachaturian's Violin Concerto. The composer's early life is explored and how his life influenced his musical compositions. The majority of the thesis is an in depth comparison between the Violin Concerto and Flute Concerto. As this thesis is designed to serve as a performance guide, different aspects in the music that require adaptations by the flutist are discussed. The strengths and weaknesses of the flute, in regards to how easy or difficult it is for the instrument to respond to certain musical aspects, are compared and contrasted with those of the violin. Reasons as to why changes have had to be made are analyzed. This paper argues that Rampal's transcription of the Khachaturian Concerto is just as thrilling and magnificent as the original score for violin. The scores used in this study are Jean Pierre Rampal's edition for flute and David Oistrakh's edition for violin. Both scores were published by International Music Company.
