Nelson Freire has made his first studio recorded recital of the music of Bach in a program offering an overview of Bach's works for the keyboard. The recital combines original works with transcriptions by Bach himself and later composers such as Busoni, Siloti and Dame Myra Hess. Freire distills a lifetime of experience with Bach into 80 minutes of authoritative playing. The new album features four of Bach's great keyboard works – the Partita No. 4 in D major, the Toccata in C minor, the English Suite No. 3 in G minor and the Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue in D minor – and a collection of delightful shorter pieces, including Busoni's celebrated transcription of Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland and culminating in the charismatic Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring from Cantata No. 147, arranged by Myra Hess.
