  • November 12, 2016 not exactly what I expected

    The edition is well done, my only quibble is with the transcriptions. I got this for Ich Ruf Zu Dir which I loved from Simone Dinnersrtein's recording, only to find that she is playing the Bach-Busoni version, which I find more interesting. Not knowing this up front is...

    a result of my own ignorance, really. This version is actually a little easier to play and still sounds beautiful, but I am playing the Busoni instead. I haven't worked on the others yet.

    I bought this for the Siciliano, so I really have only spent a good bit of time with that piece, but let me say this is a fine edition!Clean type, just enough fingering included.The transcriptions are also, of course, marvelous. Extremely natural and pianistic.

  • June 11, 2007 Intelligent transcriptions of Bach masterpieces

    I first heard these transcriptions on the car radio and sat in the parking lot until the end. Wilhelm Kempff was one of the great pianists of the 20th century and a composer. Both these attributes are clearly shown in these intelligent and insightful transcriptions.
