Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album of Bach transcriptions for piano is the fourth recording of its kind featuring the pianist Angelika Nebel and it will not be the last: this recording of twelve transcriptions is the first of two albums that will collectively run through each and every key in the same pattern as Das Wohltemperierte Clavier and thus form a kind of opus magnum. The artist once again presents transcriptions by arrangers from Germany and elsewhere. This is Nebel's way of paying a global tribute to the great Thomaskantor - and the pianist has once again written some arrangements of her own, just as she did for her previous release, Illuminationes.
