> First modern Urtext edition

> Most of them can also be played by amateur pianists

Alongside the Chaconne for violin, the ten Chorale Preludes for organ are Busoni's best-known piano transcriptions of works by J.S. Bach. Unlike the Chaconne, which Busoni envisaged for concert performance, he transcribed the Chorale Preludes in 'chamber-music style'. A great deal of this organ/piano edition can also be played by advanced amateurs.

We are publishing Busoni's definitive version in the first modern Urtext edition with valuable fingering suggestions by Marc-André Hamelin. And what is more, in the appendix we are publishing an eleventh chorale prelude for the first time: Busoni's transcription of 'Aus tiefer Not'. With regard to performing its six-part setting, the composer himself spoke of an 'extreme performance limit' - but why not judge for yourself!

Komm, Gott, Schöpfer!
Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme
Nun komm' der Heiden Heiland
Nun freut euch, lieben Christen
Ich ruf' zu dir, Herr
Herr Gott, nun schleuß den Himmel auf!
Durch Adams Fall ist ganz verderbt
Durch Adams Fall ist ganz verderbt
In dir ist Freude
Jesus Christus, unser Heiland, der von uns den Zorn Gottes wandt
Aus tiefer Not schrei ich zu Dir
