Beethoven/Liszt Symphony V

“To write a comment on one of the greatest

masterpieces of music, transcribed for piano

by a genius and performed by one of the world's most outstanding pianist would almost be inappropriate. I am speechless.”

Produced by Judith Sherman - Grammy “Producer of the Year” 2007


CD $15 + $4 S&H

The beautiful duet for mezzo-soprano and violin is often considered the high point of Bach’s masterpiece, the St Matthew Passion.

In the grand tradition of Busoni, Frederic Chiu has transcribed this aria for solo piano, and plays it often as an encore to his recital programs.
