'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)
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.

La transcription faite par Borwick de la Fugue pour orgue en sol mineur BWV578 parut en 1926. Voilà une pièce superbement efficace malgré de pesants redoublements à l’octave aux entrées de basse, aboutissant à une conclusion réellement resplendissante.

Borwicks Transkription von Bachs Orgelfuge in g-Moll BWV578 ist trotz einiger wuchtiger Oktavverdoppelungen in den Basseinsätzen ein ausgesprochen wirkungsvolles Stück, das zu einem durch und durch gloriosen Abschluss geführt wird.
