  • Chaconne from Partita No. 2 in D Minor (Piano Solo). By Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Edited by Norbert Mallemann. For Piano. Henle Music Folios. Softcover. 35 pages. G. Henle #HN557. Published by G. Henle.

Who isn't familiar with Johann Sebastian Bach's Chaconne, the final movement in his Partita in D minor for violin solo? Time and again composers have been inspired to make this exceptional piece accessible for other instruments. Perhaps the best-known arrangement is by Ferrucio Busoni. Without distancing himself too greatly from Bach's original, he endeavours to transpose the virtuosity of the string writing onto the piano. Thus Busoni wrote for the piano in a way that congenially makes the most of the capabilities of the modern piano. Our Urtext edition not only takes into account the traditional sources but also meticulously analyses a piano roll in great depth on which Busoni himself can be heard. The fingerings were provided by none other than Marc-André Hamelin.
