Program Notes

Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach, this passionate and melancholy piece brings forth the emotion of the great baroque composer. Written originally for the organ, Bach's II. Andante of Sonata No. 4 conveys a unique sorrow intertwined within its melodic graces. Not only does it transport listeners back centuries ago to appreciate Bach’s timeless artistry, but it also challenges the skills of any pianist brave enough to delve into the complexities of its signature pauses, triplets, and offbeat figures. This arrangement for piano by Ernst Stradal provides even more power to Bach’s drawling melodies, exhibiting a compiled display of repetition, reflection, grief, and timeless mastery of changed voicing through versatile chords. Enjoy the unfolding beauty of a the timeless Andante by Johann Sebastian Bach.

August Stradal's piano transcription of the Andante from Johann Sebastian Bach's Organ Sonata No. 4, BWV 528 enjoys greater popularity thanks to the recording of Vikingur Olafsson.
