  • 2023-01-31 16:15:35.0 Great collection with nice surprises

    Those familiar with Bach-Busoni transcriptions may be surprised to see names like Wilhelm Kempf and Harold Bauer in this collection. It's all worth taking a look at. One popular transcription, the Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by Carl Tausig, is not here, but another version by Busoni...

    is here. Busoni's transcriptions are well-represented, but only a selection of the chorale preludes is offered. The print is about as large as the original Breitkopf edition of Busoni, and looks great. Be prepared to sweat - these transcriptions can be pretty showy and challenging.

    Difficulty Level:
  • 2009-02-09 00:00:00.0 Bach's well known pieces

    All of them in an album, a good selection of pieces and styles. Not to many easy pieces. I really like the three Harold Bauer transcriptions a good amateur could learn them. The Siciliano arranged by Wilhelm Kempff is fairly easy to learn. I am a little disappointed that some...

    pieces are different in print size. Overall a good book what will present challenges for years to come
