A good piano transcription
by on September 14th, 2014
It matters of a transcription for piano solo of a famous orgue composition by J.S. Bach Although this transcription was not made by the artist, it is pleasant to hear without being so difficult to execute.

Great Bach's piece, but not the best transcription
by on November 6th, 2013
There is no point making comments about Bach's music. The king of composers doesn't require that. However, not all went well with transcription of his Fugue. There are some parts written in a way that it's impossible to play by two hands. Please verify.

Bach G minor fugue
by (MEMBER) on August 12th, 2012
This fugue is originally written for organ. I am a piano teacher and professional musician and was hoping that I could find a transcription for piano. This transcription was exactly what I was looking for. Normally, I would have had to go to a music store and spend a lot of time searching for and, if not available in the store, ordering and waiting for this piece. The transcription was very nicely done and being able to download the piece instantly was a great time and money saver. The only thing lacking is that there was no fingering supplied with the music. This is not a big problem because fingering is often a matter of individual preference and I often change some of the fingerings if they are included, but it is a big time saver and a good starting point for learning the piece if fingerings are included.

Virtual Sheet Music provides a great service
by on January 18th, 2011
At very low cost, it was a pleasure to obtain this sheet music in such a quick and efficient manner. The printed pages are clear and well displayed, and a special consideration was the opportunity keep the download available for a day or so in case there was a glitch in receiving or printing it. Since my printer ran out of ink midway through my first printing effort, it was wonderful to be able to run it through again after changing the cartridge. Many thanks.

Nice place to go after inventions
by on April 26th, 2010
The G Minor Fugue has the virtue of being recognizable and attractive for students. This particular realization for piano is relatively playable, without the need for large hands as in the Busoni transcriptions and others. It is a fun piece. It could be more serviceable with some editing, however the clean sheet allows the teacher to provide this.

Bach's "Little" Fugue in G Minor
by on September 13th, 2009
I have been playing Piano for many years and heard this piece being played on a piano in the movie "Elegy" and suddenly realized that I could get this piece for piano only. I think this transcription was done pretty well. You can tell that the organ pedal tones are missing, but that is to be expected. The basic intertwining of the melody and the accompanying counterpoint has been preserved. It would have been useful to include a suggested tempo. Contrary to a lot of thinking the tempo on this fugue is quite slow, which allows for a lot of drama near the end when the "Joy of Bach" starts to be felt. There is the possiblity of playing some partial bass passages with the right hand and vice versa. It depends on the indiviual skill of the pianist. There is only a single place in the entire piece that indicates one hand must be used at a specific point. This is a fun piece to learn but the fingering must be clearly established before you start.

Nicely presented. Clearly printed. As with any Bach, some suggested fingerings would be helpful. But perhaps generation of appropriate fingerings is just part of the exercise!
