Bach: Piano Transcriptions, Vol. 9 - A Bach Book for Harriet Cohen
British Bach Transcriptions

In 1931 the pianist and muse Harriet Cohen invited all her principal composer friends each to make an arrangement of a work by J S Bach for inclusion in an album to be published by Oxford University Press. Published as A Bach Book for Harriet Cohen, it is recorded here for the first time by virtuoso pianist Jonathan Plowright. The disc is completed by eight other 20th-century British Bach transcriptions.
