Pricd as one disc though.

So, not so much “deluxe” as “cut price”.  :laugh:
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Released 11th September:



Blurb (from Presto):

• Bach’s music is often described as indestructible, in the sense that no matter how it is performed or in whichever arrangement, its essential spirit survives. In the Baroque period the practice of arranging one’s own music or that of other composers was common place, and Bach himself was an indefatigable transcriber and arranger, using his own music to multiple purposes. Besides saving time and creative energy it gave the opportunity to other instrumentalists to play music of such high quality and universal value.

• This set contains 20 CDs with arrangements and transcriptions of Bach’s works, for a wide variety of instruments or instrumental combinations: recorder quintet, guitar, string trio, saxophone and even a full symphony orchestra!

• In whatever way we hear music of Bach, his genius and universal message of beauty, truth and humanity shines through!

Yes, but you get more Bang for your buck  ;D

I have to admit the idea of the Suites for 'cello transcribed for baritone saxophone never occurred to me.

This release is interesting to me because it contains Bruno Mantovani's 6th quartet, presumably given as an encore to an all Beethoven (yuck!) programme.

Having inherited a collection of the other Mantovani's records from my grandparents, I am always confused by references to Bruno Mantovani, who could not be more different!

Todd has posted some brief thoughts on the Kuss box though not the Bruno.

Some years ago I purchased the CDs with the cello/saxophone arrangement, but they ended in the bin.

100 discs of Karl Richter.



Now that the Francois complete set is back, how long until the Cziffra set is reissued?  That's the one I didn't buy when I should have.





I'd be more interested were it Thurston Howell III.

These singers are quite interesting I think, they’ve produced recordings of early Danish and Swedish music. I expect this new one will be essential listening for me, though I’ve never heard of Wizlaw von Rügen.

First impressions are that it’s a bit jaunty.

Lovely instrument well recorded, this is a goody I think (on the basis of less than 5 minutes random dipping.)

Oooo, I like this voice! In small doses at least, lots of character! Countertenor and flute, who’s have thunk it would work so nicely? Good music too, if you like that sort of thing, Renaissance songs.

Good cover too.

It appears Naxos is releasing a recording of Bach's Cello Suites transcribed for piano in October.
