Antony Gray has recorded a three CD set of piano music featuring transcriptions and reworkings of Bach’s music; the set has now been released on ABC Classics. The CDs are a great achievement and include Andrew Schultz’s Sleepers Wake – Karalananga – a piece that is extracted and transcribed for piano from the cantata, Journey to Horseshoe Bend. The connection to Bach is via the Schultz cantata’s use of Bach’s harmonisation of the famous Wachet Auf (or Sleepers Wake) chorale.
