Baroque masterpieces in modern dress: J.S. Bach and his contemporaries loved to arrange their own as well as others’ works for different instruments; in the 19th century, the golden age of keyboard virtuosos like Franz Liszt or Ferruccio Busoni, the piano was the instrument of choice. These skilful piano transcriptions show us Bach’s familiar choral and instrumental works in a completely new light!
