Franz Liszt's transcriptions of other composers' music are as highly regarded as his original piano works. Some listeners Schumann among them consider Liszt's painstaking transcriptions to be completely new works. Using his gifts for fathoming the deepest meanings of a given piece, Liszt also created a uniquely revealing work. In addition to drawing attention to composers and works that would otherwise have remained unknown to a wider public, Liszt's piano transcriptions introduced the instrument to uncharted territory: for the first time, a keyboard could be used to reproduce the sound of any instrument. The composer brought numerous innovations to the practice of piano playing to achieve the richness and color of the original works, from the technique of hand crossing to revolutionary changes in the use of the pedals. First acquainted with the works of Bach through his piano studies, Liszt further explored the earlier composer's works in his career as a virtuoso performer. His piano interpretations of Bach's organ music are executed in a simple and straightforward manner, and they rapidly became the classic models for all future works in this genre. This compilation, featuring such famous and well-loved works as Six Organ Preludes and Fugues (BWV 543 548) and the Fantasy and Fugue in G minor (BWV 542), attests to their enduring power and beauty.

Early in his career, Bach began to transcribe for the keyboard a number of concertos for violin, oboe, and other instruments by such baroque masters as Vivaldi and Telemann. His purpose: to study and explore the works of other composers as well as to supply good clavier music for his own performances. This collection of sixteen of these celebrated transcriptions is reprinted from the definitive Bach-Gesellschaft edition prepared by Ernst Naumann and presented in a study format designed to give amateur and professional pianists and harpsichordists a lifetime of pleasurable study and use. Six of these glorious keyboard works are known to be transcriptions of Vivaldi violin concertos. Three are based on concertos written by Duke Johann Ernst of Saxe-Weimar, the son of Bach's employer at Weimar. One is based on a violin concerto by Telemann, another on an oboe concerto by Alessandro Marcello, and another on a concerto by Benedetto Marcello. The sources of the remaining works are unknown. Vivaldi, whose music Bach probably first heard in 1712, was to provide a strong influence on the young composer. Bach would eventually assimilate the Italian's style and use it with his own contrapuntal heritage and the Northern idiom in creating what we recognize today as the typical Bach style. These transcriptions, which represent his introduction to the new idiom, richly display a dynamic virtuosity that makes their performance an exhilarating experience.

In this document I will examine Alexander Siloti's (1863-1945) fourteen transcriptions for solo piano of works by J.S. Bach (1685-1750) that are currently in print. I will compare all of these transcriptions to Bach's originals and discuss Siloti's musical treatment of Bach's music. When possible and relevant, I will compare certain works to transcriptions of the same pieces by contemporaries of Siloti, including Ferruccio Busoni (1866-1924), Ignaz Friedman (1882-1948), Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991), Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921), and Theodor Szántó (1877-1934). I will also consider other Bach transcriptions made by Siloti in instances where he completed a solo piano transcription and one or more transcriptions of the same work for other instrumental combinations. It is my hope that pianists will become acquainted with a small but excellent body of work by a neglected artist due to this examination of Siloti's Bach transcriptions. To this end I will give a brief overview of the history of the nineteenth century piano transcription, Bach as a transcriber, and the legacy of Bach's music as transcribed for the piano. I will also provide important details about Siloti's biography, and discuss his style and technique as a transcriber of Bach's music. Lastly, I will examine Siloti's fourteen Bach transcriptions for solo piano in detail.
