Rufus! Rufus! Rufus!

Jon Frederiksen

One musical character who has remained fascinating to me is the great Rufus Wainwright. If you haven't heard of him by now, well, there is only so much more to dive into. At this point, I reckon he be considered among the big song-writers of our time, and at this point, he might even live up to that Elton John quote often tossed around by promoting journalists.

Rufus Wainwright is a humorous, glamorously gay, cheeky, showmanship-minded composer; always with a profound ready answer in interviews and on stage. Besides this, he is an impressive musician himself - an ambitious piano player and arranger, a terrifyingly talented singer, and of course a heavenly gifted composer. (I will appropriately leave his guitar skills out of this otherwise praising blog).

At times, there is an almost mystical aspect to it. Do you know that moment when your words just grossly fail to do justice? His music often escapes description in that way. It doesn't just soundtrack the listener's well-traveled emotional landscape but teaches the listener new places to go! As a transcriber, I can tell that the music is mystically alive when notating all the instruments still doesn't demystify a thing!

From a musician's standpoint, his piano playing is especially noteworthy. Since I still have a lot to learn from his etude-like piano songs, I will surely keep the transcriptions coming on this site. These are the songs I have prepared so far:
