Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The fascination that Johann Sebastian Bach held for subsequent generations of composers is evident in the many arrangements of his works for piano those by Lizst, Busoni and others are profound interpretations by admirers by admirers of the Baroque master. For a long time, this remarkable repertoire was overshadowed by the originals, and we owe it to Alexis Weissenberg and Bruno-Leonardo Gelber that it now enjoys worldwide recognition.

EMI Classics continues its Red Line series with another collection of timeless classical pieces. This series features a wide variety of the most talented classical pieces of all time, written by such legendary artists as Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Mozart. In addition, each CD features some of the most popular classical performers such as the London Classical Players, Andre Parrot, Bruno Leonardo Gelber and Libor Pesek. Every CD in the Red Line series features some of the most defining pieces in musical history.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2013
Savour the stunning virtuosity of pianist Bruno-Leonardo Gelber at his 1960s peak. Alexis Weissenberg's rippling fingerwork in Nun freut euch and D minor Toccata and Fugue still amaze.
