  • April 09, 2009 Good version of the Fugue portion

    I don't like this version of the Toccata, but it is a great piano version of the Fugue. Some of the arrangement is odd, but it's easy to modify which hand plays the notes to make it easier to play without changing the notes that are played.

  • February 25, 2009 Superlative Piano Arrangement

    This is NOT meant to be a faithful transcription. Instead, it is an arrangement for virtuoso piano players. Busoni's intent was to use the capabilities of the piano to re-create the effects of the organ. He succeeds spectacularly. You should attempt this piece only if you have mastered...

    all elements of piano technique. If you can't competently play Chopin's and Liszt's etudes, don't even try.

  • July 31, 2007 Very Pleased

    I've been wanting to play this piece for some time but was rather daunted at first be the appearance. But if you take the time to practice it isn't all that hard. I haven't gotten it to the point where I can play it fluently but I...

    look forward to it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fuller sounding arrangement.

  • April 23, 2006 Superior arrangement

    This Busoni arrangement is an expansion on the original organ version. While far more difficult that other versions, it successfully achieves a much more triumphant sound, as the piano does not have the sustaining or building power of the organ. If you're looking for a note-for-note transcription...

    of the organ version, this is not it. But if you're looking for a jaw-dropping virtuoso performance piece, this is the one.
