Bach – 21 Fantasies and Fugues for piano

SKU: CS1734 Categories: ,
This score can be purchased on:


In this collection, they are inserted fantasies most beautiful and precious of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Are transcriptions for piano, written on scores extracted from original catalogs: “Bach’s Compositionen für die
Orgel. Hrsg. v. Griepenkerl und Roitzsch”, “Gesellschaft Ausgabe”, “Leipzig Musikbibliothek”, “Peters Editions”, “Kirnberger chorale collection Chorale Preludes”, etc. These are fantasies attributed to Bach, although there are other fantasies whose paternity is not Bach but his cousin Johann Bernhard Bach and falling however in the catalog BWV (Bach-Werke- Verzeichnis) author, Wolfgang Schmieder. Therefore, after the piano transcriptions of the Orchestral Suite, Concerts and other major works always transcribed for piano, we have created a specific book aimed to the fantasies. They are 21 works, and in some of these fantasies there is also the fugue. The level of execution we can define “intermediate” for some, “advancedintermediate” “advanced” for the
others. The great genius of composition of Bach, has made the sheet music a real for study tool, of happiness, love
and faith. Each note has a reason well defined and specific, as if that note with the next was a direct dialogue with God. We tried to reproduce in the score for piano, the same pathos found in the original. We hope to have succeeded. Thanks and have fun.
