Wilhelm Kempff's Bach Transcriptions

Wilhelm Kempff's Bach Transcriptions

These gorgeous set of solo pieces was transcribed by the pianist himself from Bach vocal and instrumental works. Perfect listening for a rainy day, cooking dinner, or a calm, reflective morning. 

I've always enjoyed Kempff's sense of rhythm, tone, and clear interpretations. These are particularly grounding and gorgeous. It is also fun listening if you happen to know the pieces in their original form. 

You can listen to the pieces on Spotify here. 

If you are a pianist, many of these transcriptions are available on IMSLP.org. 


Happy playing & listening!
