Chorale Prelude BWV643 'Alle Menschen müssen sterben'

arr. Angela Hewitt


This delightful disc offers a selection from the wealth of piano transcriptions of Bach's music. The Bach revival that gathered momentum during the nineteenth century created a climate for many composer-pianists to interpret his works through their own piano transcriptions, whether of chorale preludes, organ works or other instrumental music. Much of Bach's music was made domestically available via such arrangements (and the tradition continued well into the twentieth century, even after Bach originals were well known). Indeed, the practice of such transcriptions was widely used by Bach himself, who freely adapted his own and others' music for different instrumental settings. One of today's finest Bach pianists, Angela Hewitt concentrates primarily on those arrangements of Bach that keep pianistic elaboration and virtuosity in proportion: whatever instrument his music is played on, Bach should still sound like Bach. Eugen d'Albert's magnificent transcription of the C minor Passacaglia and Fugue for organ, BWV582, is included, as are five beautiful transcriptions by Wilhelm Kempff, and a number of arrangements by English composers that were included in A Bach Book for Harriet Cohen (a collection compiled for the pianist Harriet Cohen, who knew many English composers of the early twentieth century). Angela Hewitt also includes three transcriptions of her own. A fascinating companion to Angela Hewitt's acclaimed Bach recordings for Hyperion, this ravishing disc will appeal to lovers of Bach as much as connoisseurs of the piano.

Bergen Barokk

One of the merits of the early music movement has been to highlight the flexibility of the Baroque repertoire and to show how conducive it is to realisation in a variety of ensembles and contexts. Yet the modern perception of Bach clearly has a life of its own. There is an almost unspoken romanticised notion among musicians, researchers and the listening public that the genius of this master's works, unlike those of his contemporaries, must be understood and respected in the context of complete and perfect compositions.

To tamper with these works would somehow compromise this perfection. However, this is not the way the master himself would have seen it. Bach saw music as a science and himself as a researcher. Like some of his contemporaries, he would not be averse to re-use his own material (often called musical parody). This is by no means due to laziness, rather because re-using for him was really a way to further explore the material's potential. The same can be said for his attitude towards reworking the oevres of other composers. Bach was not one to plagiarize or "improve" his contemporaries' works, but preferred to learn from and explore the opportunities of a composition. Armed with a score by a Vivaldi or a Pergolesi, he would inevitably pick up Italian musical traits and link it in with his own personal style.

Inspired by Bach's practice, Bergen Barokk has for many years arranged, and at times quite radically rearranged, several of Bach's works and adapted them to our performance situations. We have both abridged and elaborated on original scores and discovered that there is scarcely a harpsichord piece, an organ trio, cantata, aria or dance from Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach that is not waiting to be unravelled in several ways. In this recording we present some selected examples.
