J.S. BACH: CHACONNE FROM PARTITA NO.2 D MINOR (ARR. FERRUCCIO BUSONI)

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.
