J. S. バッハ プレリュードとフーガ: A. ストラダル編曲(ピアノ独奏用)

バッハのオルガン曲は多くの音楽家がピアノ用編曲をのこしている。最初に編曲と手がけたのはF.リストと言ってもよいかもしれない。ストらダルは一時リストに師事しており、師匠が手を付けていない膨大な「対象曲」をそれこそ片っ端から編曲した(?)様だ。ここに収録したBWV531~BWV552(551除く)ピアノ独奏用編曲は「ピアノの総譜」的な編曲をするA.ストラダルによるもので、楽譜のうえでは(理屈では)演奏できることになっているものの、実際に演奏するには無理な点が多い。しかし出てくる音は「見事」としか言いようがない。

J. S. Bach: Preludes and Fugues, (Trans. for solo piano by August Stradal) 3CDs】
August Stradal (17 May 1860, Teplice, Bohemia – 13 March 1930, Krásná Lípa, Bohemia) was a student of Anton Bruckner. His pianistic credentials included studies with Franz Liszt. He produced a wide amount of solo piano arrangements of works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Dietrich Buxtehude, Richard Wagner and other composers. Stradal’s arrangements sometimes tend to prove problematic, and almost too demanding for merely two hands, but constitute a fascinating array of music. One of the particular characteristics of his arrangements are the increased multiple voice assemblies used to highlight the original melody as much as possible and an almost excessive increase in notes for the left-hand part. Many of them are considerably difficult to perform. This set presents a series of Stradal’s arrangements of Bach’s organ Preludes and Fugues (BWV.531 - 552, exc. 551) performed by the virtual pianist Michael Nanasakov.
