Toccata in D Minor for Organ; BWV 565 by : Marc-Andre Hamelin : Johann Sebastian Bach : Christian Schaper : Ullrich Scheideler : Feruccio Busoni
Bach/Busoni a pairing that makes pianists' hearts beat faster. This is because Busoni succeeded in making piano transcriptions of works that Bach had originally tailor made for another instrument in such a way that one can still sense the original sound world while the grand piano is able to show off its full potential.
Together with the C major Toccata; BWV 564; his transcription of the Organ Toccata in D minor; BWV 565 (now; after some interim uncertainty; once more considered a work by Bach); was to round off his reworkings of Bach for Breitkopf & Härtel in 1900. In Busoni's view a worthy culmination because the toccatas were indeed as he informed his publisher “obviously the best among my achievements of this kind and I am confident in expecting they will make a strong impact”.
G. Henle Publishers agrees with this assessment and presents the famous D minor Toccata and Fugue in an attractive Urtext edition that has consulted all of the sources and offers fingerings by the exceptional pianist Marc André Hamelin.
