Notes & Reviews:

Bach Metamorphoses includes a transcription of Bach's Italian Concerto in F Major by Talmi himself, who declared, "Had Bach had a large, powerful ensemble at his disposal, would he have adapted his own works for such an orchestra? In my humble opinion, the answer is undoubtedly." Following its first hugely successful recording of transcriptions for orchestra, Yoav Talmi and l'Orchestre symphonique de Quebec return with Bach Metamorphoses, a program of transcriptions of works by J.S. Bach.
