Violin Sonata, without Accompaniment by J.S.BACH/Leopold Godowsky
ピアノ編曲による無伴奏ヴァイオリン ソナタ/レオポルト・ゴドフスキー

無伴奏ヴァイオリン・ソナタ1番、パルティータ1番、ソナタ2番をもとにしたゴドフスキーによるピアノ編曲作品。ゴドフスキーは複数のメロディーを幾つも組み合わせ対位法的に同時進行させる。その手腕は実に見事であり、あたかもバッハ自身が書いたように思わせるところ、まさにピアノ王ゴドフスキ-以外には書き得ない楽譜となっている。他に今回がCD初録音となる、Henselt/Godowskyの”If I were a bird”と更にシークレット・トラックもある。

【Violin Sonata, without Accompaniment by J.S.BACH/Leopold Godowsky】
  Godowsky combines multiple melodies and plays them simultaneously in counterpoint. This ability is quite brilliant and makes listeners feel that it could have been written by Bach himself - a score that only the king of piano Godowsky could achieve.

  Nanasakov was supposedly born in Lietuvos Respublika in 1955 but I am sure that there is no one who still believes this. This was actually a joke by the producer (Junichi Nanasawa) who introduced Nanasakov as a Virtual Pianist in 1991. It is, in actual fact, a hall recording using a computer and a Player Piano that finally took place after staggeringly lengthy repetitions of trial and error. Godowsky combines multiple melodies and plays them simultaneously in counterpoint. This ability is quite brilliant and makes listeners feel that it could have been written by Bach himself - a score that only the king of piano Godowsky could achieve.
