About this release

Like many of his colleagues J.S. Bach frequently borrowed from himself and paid tribute to other composers by transcribing their works for other instruments, For example his oeuvre for organ includes transcriptions of some instrumental concertos based on work of composers like Vivaldi.

These release contains transcriptions of both Bach’s own concertos for solo keyboard and of instrumental concertos by Vivaldi. These works are certainly enhanced by the sonorities of the organ.

Played by the Russian organist Elena Barshai on the Silbermann organ of Arlesheim Cathedral and the Metzler organ of the Church of St. Clara, Basle (both in Switzerland).

Also included is an arrangement for two organs – both played by Barshai - of Bach’s Concerto for four harpsichords (which again is based on a concerto for four violins by Vivaldi).

Other information:
- Excellent performances. An interesting production and not just for Bach and organ lovers.
