Notes & Reviews:

When Tedi Papavrami began planning a CD program Bartók’s Sonata, he soon ran up against the difficulty of choosing the other works that would echo the piece. Bach’s Fantaisie & Fugue BWV 542 had fascinated him from the first time he heard it, and his choice for the second transcription readily went to a work of a thoroughly different nature. The Suite, BWV 822 for harpsichord charmed him straightaway with its orchestral overture à la française and Italian influences.

"[Papavrami's] version of Bach's organ Fantaisie and Fugue, BWV 542, is superb, adding a convincing solo fugue to Bach's extant three and paralleling Bartok's second movement. (Bartok's first shares an opening chord with the Fantaisie.) Both performances are tremendous, as is that of Papavrami's fine transcription of Bach's harpsichord suite, BWV 822." -Sunday Times***
