Notes and Editorial Reviews

At the age of only 28, Luxembourgian pianist Sabine Weyer was appointed professor at the Conservatory of the City of Luxembourg in 2016. A special appointment that shows how respected the young artist already is. On her latest recording 'Bach to the Future' on Ars Produktion, works by Bach and their arrangements by Busoni, Saint-Saëns and Siloti can be heard. Weyer writes of her new release: “Bach to the future. Borrowing the title from Robert Zemecki’s science fiction movie, I conceive of J.S. Bach as a central figure, as a composer with profound influence on the future course of music history, through the prism of a number of transcriptions by other composers. These works surround Bach’s oeuvre like a series of future scenarios and Read more guide the listener through a journey of discovery.” Read less
