'Jonathan Plowright plays everything with calm, unforced assurance, nicely balancing Bach style and 1930s period manners, and making light of all the left-hand skips needed to suggest Bach's organ pedal parts. An immaculate recording and Calum MacDonald's detailed notes enhance the disc's appeal' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Every so often a CD comes along that I simply can't stop playing. Here's one such example … glorious interpretations by Jonathan Plowright' (The Observer)

'There are some gems here … this is an invaluable addition to Hyperion's Bach Piano Transcriptions series and Plowright has done us an enormous service in resurrecting these transcriptions and in rendering them so eloquently' (International Record Review)

Little Fugue in G minor, BWV578
composer
arranger
published in 1926

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Borwick’s transcription of Bach’s Little Fugue in G minor BWV578 was published in 1926. This is a superbly effective piece despite some ponderous octave doubling in the bass entries, working up to a really resplendent conclusion.
