Bach Transcribed – Alessio Bax

It is a sign of the brilliance of J.S. Bach that great pianists have chosen to recreate and reinterpret his works in so many ways. In thirteen great transcriptions, ranging from Wilhelm Kempff’s subtle resetting of Wachet auf to Ferruccio Busoni’s virtuosic grandeur in the Chaconne from one of the partitas for solo violin, the star pianist Alessio Bax give performances that capture the reverence for and resplendence of Bach’s music.

Alessio Bax is universally praised for his lyrical playing and insightful interpretations. Following in the footsteps of previous winners such as Joshua Bell, Hilary Hahn and Gil Shaham, on 23 April he was awarded the Avery Fisher Career Grant for 2009, presented once a year to talented instrumentalists who show great potential for solo careers.

“ … a level of technical control that gives new meaning to the word ‘awesome’ … Furthermore, Bax retains tonal beauty and definition even in the loudest and most sonorous passages”

Jed Distler

Gramophone Magazine

“There are some terrific moments in Bax’s performance”
