• From the wealth of Bach transcriptions recorded during the first half of the last century Naxos Historical presents a glorious showcase of classic performances from a cornucopia of great pianists.

• The list of performers speaks volumes of the awe in which Bach’s musical genius was held, inspiring many of the artists to pay homage with their own imaginative transcriptions.

• With interest in Bach’s music still at an unprecedented high after last year’s 250th anniversary celebrations there should be a place in every collection for this unusual and fascinating programme.
