Bach/Say Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor

SKU 49016112
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.
