Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album of Bach transcriptions for piano is the fifth recording of its kind featuring the pianist Angelika Nebel. This recording of twelve transcriptions is the second of two releases that will collectively run through each and every key in the same pattern as The Well Tempered 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. The German pianist, Angelika Nebel, studied at the colleges of music in Stuttgart and Hannover, where she was educated by the famous teachers Jürgen Uhde and Hans Leygraf and finished her studies with the concert examination. Angelika Nebel's repertoire Read more includes pieces of solo-, chamber music and Orchestra music from the 18th to the 21st century, which she presented as a guest at several festivals: Alte Oper Frankfurt, Schumann-Festival Düsseldorf, Semperoper Dresden, Darmstädter Tage for contemporary music and monastery San Domenic, Pistoia, Italy. She has given concerts in different European countries as well as in South-Korea. She also performs regularly with her chamber music partner delian::quartet. Read less
