Musician's or Publisher's Notes
d minor (after J. S. Bach, BWV 1004) Busoni
The Chaconne is a Baroque
dance and variation form. It originated in Latin America as a dance-song and
became popular in Spain and Italy in the 17th century. Chaconnes were a
hallmark of the ballet sequences in the operas of Rameau and Lully as well as
in German keyboard music of the 17th and 18th centuries. Bach and Purcell
elevated the Chaconne to concert status.

Lovely.Interesting that it will not be recorded until this July coming. All the same, I am glad I heard it today.
Good catch, antes. Will fix
It's interesting how many times this song has been played and uploaded. I have it about 10 times on my playlist all posted by different people! But I must say I enjoy this recording.
It seems to be one of the most popular pieces in the piano repertoire, both with the musicians and the listeners.
