Busoni's transcription of the Chaconne from Bach's Partita No.2 for Unaccompanied Violin BWV 1004 was an early product of the composer's extensive and searching creative preoccupation with the music of his predecessor. This arrangement for piano is extraordinarily imaginative and inventive, and has established a firm place in the repertoire. This adaptation of a single melodic line into a fully-fledged, virtuosic solo piano piece for concert performance is a true masterpiece and will provide an enjoyable challenge for the accomplished pianist.
This Urtext edition presents you with the an accurate realisation of the composer/arranger’s original intentions, with thoroughly detailed editorial markings and suggestions, as edited by Paul Banks.
