Books | Piano

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

J. S. Bach's Chaconne From Partita No.2 D Minor, arranged by Ferruccio Busoni for solo Violin.

The final movement in Bach's Partita, the Chaconne in D Minor has inspired many highly-regarded composers over the years and there are several whom have sought to make this exceptional piece accessible for other instruments.

Perhaps the best-known arrangement is by Ferruccio Busoni. Without distancing himself too greatly from Bach’s original, he endeavors to transpose the virtuosity of the String writing onto the Piano. Thus Busoni wrote for the Piano in a way that congenially makes the most of the capabilities of the modern Piano.

This Henle Urtext edition not only takes into account the traditional sources but also meticulously analyses a Piano roll in great depth on which Busoni himself can be heard. The fingerings are provided by none other than Marc-André Hamelin.
