Another excellent recording of Max Reger transcriptions of Bach for four hands on piano, wonderfully performed by Sonraud Speidel and Evelinde Trekner. Air on a G String for piano? Lovely. The Orchestral Suites translate to piano with dance-like qualities. The organ works are also outstanding, even if the Tocatta and Fugue is a bit overly dramatic. The Passacaglia in C minor is excellent with beautifully cascading octaves.
An extraordinary cd of some of Bach's most melodic orchestral works translated to piano duo: highly recommended.
