In the whole history of music, a few piano transcriptions are so interesting and exciting as Busoni's arrangements from Bach. This is both virtuoso and sensible piano music ranging from the atmospheric "Ciaccona" to some electrifying Fugas. Following the success of previous complete editions of piano works performed by Pietro Spada, ARTS is proud to include in its catalogue these two CDs recorded about twenty years ago. When it first appeared for RCA, the original box set including 3 Lps, was the first ever complete edition of Busoni's transcriptions from Bach. ARTS offers now all the recordings in two CDs only, with a new editing and mastering on the original masters, including also new essays written by Pietro Spada. The special price, the excellent performance and the nice artwork make this new proposal irresistible to all fans of piano music. A different way of approaching Bach's works shortly before the Bach Year.
