Notes & Reviews:

Even during his own time it was common for Bach to transcribe earlier works into new settings for express purposes. Later composers (often his own students) and those of later centuries often took these now famous works and reworked them. Such admirers of Bach as Brahms, Busoni and Rachmaninov were to create "arrangements," "renderings," "transcriptions" and "studies." Even such modernists as Schoenberg and Webern couldn't resist "transmogrifying" works of Bach into orchestral works. As Johann Friedrich Agricola, one of Bach's students wrote, "Their author often played them himself on Clavichord and added so much harmony as he deemed necessary. In so doing he realized the need for a sounding harmony which he could not reach more fully in that composition." On this recording the renowned Dutch harpsichordist Bob van Asperen has arranged, with the help of the Bach's themselves these classic works.
