Naxos Records, a leading label and distributor of Classical Music, announces a March 2018 “Brandenburg Duets” release on their Grand Piano label. Launched in 2012, Grand Piano has quickly gained a reputation for producing high quality recordings of rare keyboard gems and the new arrangement of the Brandenburg Concertos was a perfect fit for its repertoire of world premiere recordings. The album will be distributed globally both physically and digitally through the Naxos distribution network, and since it is a release from a “house” label, it will be given priority by their sales organizations.
The Six Solo Cello Suites are some of the most celebrated and much-loved works in the classical repertoire, and they continue to fascinate and inspire performers and audiences alike. In this brand new transcription for solo piano, Eleonor Bindman pays tribute to this music’s enduring allure. … The transcription offers scope for some adventurous interpretation, particularly in the wonderfully playful pairs of Minuets, Bourrées and Gavottes. … Like the works included in her ‘Stepping Stones to Bach’, Eleonor has provided pianists with yet more repertoire to explore, and her elegantly, meticulous transcriptions shine a new light on this wonderful music while also remaining true to the original.
