ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Transcriptions are an act of love. With these wonderful recordings, Alan Weiss with his brilliant artistry as well as extraordinary pianism, reveals the genre’s endless possibilities.”
Martha Argerich

“I’m looking forward to the publication of your transcriptions. I’m sure this will be a hit.”
Nelson Freire

“Transcriptions of Alan Weiss are results of high culture, sophisticated knowledge and deep understanding of the nature of the piano and unique vision of a great artist.”
Sergei Babayan

“Bach’s birthday is even more special because of your violin sonata transcription.”
David Dubal

When we first heard the piano transcriptions of Alan Weiss we had the impression of listening to the purest representation of the “Golden Age” of the great pianists from the past. All the flexibility and freedom of phrasing heard in historic performances by masters such as Sergei Rachmaninoff, Josef Lhevinne, Josef Hofmann, Alfred Cortot, Benno Moiseiwitsch, Rudolf Serkin and of course Vladimir Horowitz were alive right there in front of us. Not just because of the unique style and golden sonority of Weiss’s playing, but especially due to the profound manner with which these transcriptions were conceived and written – a revival of the great tradition of those giants of the piano! Those of Liszt, Tausig, Busoni, Godowsky and
Horowitz were not just mere virtuoso adaptations, but wonderful re-creations; in fact it was about a truly new set of compositions that brought into the piano’s domain works originally written for guitar, violin, choir etc. The primordial essence of these originals was not only respected, but, we must say: it was honored and transcended! And we believe that Alan Weiss has joined this illustrious group in his own personal way: a real treasure from the beginning until the end that we feel as a duty to share with the world.
