interesting arrangement of BWV565,
This review is from: Bach: Violin Sonatas (Audio CD)
I bought just the Toccata & Fugue arrangement for solo violin, since I like this sort of novelty.
I am a little disappointed in it, but am hard put to say why - if forced, I'd say the deep notes just after where the preview sample fades out (about a minute in) weren't as I expected but were played with, and in general virtuosity substitutes for long notes in quite a few places.
However, rearrangements are a very personal thing, and you might like it; it is certainly a tour de force both of arrangement skill and performance, and I still found myself visualising the "Fantasia" flashes at several points. I don't regret the purchase!
Oh, it stops very suddenly (-:!
