In Western Europe, the widespread polyphonic arrangement of the melodies of Gregorian chant was the foundation of all polyphonic music until the 16th century. The arrangement of folk melodies, better known as their harmonization, became very important in the 19th and 20th centuries. Many outstanding composers, among them Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, Balakirev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, and Liadov, wrote arrangements of folk melodies. An arrangement of a polyphonic composition for a different instrumentation is often called an adaptation or transposition; when a work is arranged for orchestra it is known as an orchestration. The name “transcription” is often given to an arrangement of a composition, usually written for a single instrument such as piano or violin, that intensifies its virtuoso role while retaining the original instrumentation.
