Using pianist and composer Nicolas Economou’s un-notated piano works as case studies, I aim to examine the process of transcribing and transforming, through appropriate editing, notational transcriptions into scores – “prescriptive” (and not “descriptive”) texts to which one can ascribe authority, and which can be used for further, “authentic” performances. In order to achieve that, discussion on critical editing/textual criticism practices, and musical work ontology as established in Western art music traditions is necessary, as well as discussion on notions such as authorship and authority.
