Chiara Bertoglio, concert pianist and musicologist, studied at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, the University of Venice and the University of Birmingham. In this programme of J S Bach’s music, Chiara includes transcriptions by Brahms and Busoni who both revered his work. Brahms wrote of the Chaconne BWV1004, “On one stave, for a small instrument, the man writes a whole world of the deepest thoughts and most powerful feelings.” Busoni’s version of the ‘Goldberg’ Variations is a fine example of his admiration for Bach and also captures his capacity to modernise the work, making full use of the piano, while keeping the original feel of the ‘baroque’.
