Fake Bach - A Journey Into Bach Arrangements
Format: COMPACT DISC
The concept behind Fake Bach is to record a recital dedicated to Johann Sebastian Bach that focuses on piano transcriptions that are ‘daring’ and ‘scandalous’, providing a unique perspective on Bach’s music. Encouraged by Franz Liszt and reflecting the progressive Bach Renaissance of the 1800s, these transcriptions date from 1850 to the First World War. The pianist-composer-virtuosos on this album researched the essence of Bach’s genius and ended up expressing mostly themselves and their own personalities, dissolving the space between interpreter and their ‘object of love’ composer.
