This CD includes piano transcriptions of pieces by Marcello, Händel, Bach and Mozart, and Mariam Batsashvili is certainly one who knows how to bring the notes to life. Through her performance you will hear something of the lost art of fantasizing, revisiting, arranging, interpre- ting that the composers Bach, Busoni and Liszt understood so well. While honoring the masters they transferred their identity on these pieces, making these original masterworks accessible for new audien- ces, while adding extra layers of excitement. But what else would you expect when that name is Bach, Busoni or Liszt...
