J.S. Bach: Orchestral Suites (Complete), BWV 1066-1069 Arranged for Piano Duet


Eleonor Bindman’s new arrangement of Bach’s Orchestral Suites for piano duet follows her widely admired transcriptions of the six Brandenburg Concertos. Once again, the transcription reimagines Bach’s writing using the modern piano, in this case a Bösendorfer. Bindman draws upon the suite’s dance movements to suggest how Bach might have distributed the material, ordering them for maximum contrast, and succeeding in conveying the music’s vitality and beauty in a new medium.
