Description
The Turkish pianist and composer Fazıl Say has from the age of six begun each day with the performance of a keyboard work by Bach; his concert programmes include both numerous original compositions and transcriptions. His own piano transcriptions of the well-known Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor and the Fantasy and Fugue in g minor are neither mere incorporations of the pedal voice with its almost continous ostinato theme into the left hand of the piano part, nor purely virtuoso ornamentations of the original version. His intention is to produce an imaginative transcription of the relatively two-dimensional organ registration by adding the tonal elements which are possibile to play on the piano.
