The Turkish pianist and composer Fazil Say has found renown in his concerts of original compositions and transcriptions. His transcription of Bach's famous organ work Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor (BWV 582) is neither a mere incorporation of the pedal voice with its almost continous ostinato theme into the left hand of the piano part, nor a purely virtuoso ornamentation of the original version. His intention is to produce an imaginative transcription of the relatively two-dimensional organ registration utilizing the tonal possibilities of the piano.
