  • January 21, 2020 A worthy challenge

    This is great music and it is a worthy challenge to learn these pieces. Not for players with small hands, though. A complementary to these transcriptions is E. d'Albert's piano transcriptions of BWV 534, 536, 537, 538, 540 and 541. I know of no modern editions of these...

    pieces, but reprints of old editions can be bought at

  • April 25, 2007 Great, Best Quality for Piano!!!

    This is Lizt's complete transcriptions of Bach's Organ Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, and his other popular preludes and fugues. They are very difficult, (as would be expected from anything that Liszt has composed), and thrilling to hear. However, it is important to remember that when auditioning...

    to get into a music college, they have banned playing any of Bach's Prelude and fugues for organ for the piano. (Buyer beware)
