In the Bach transcriptions, we find the same ingenuity that characterized Godowsky’s Chopin Studies, coupled with a majesty quite unique in the piano literature. Carlo Grante has earned worldwide acclaim for his previous Godowsky recordings. In particular, Vol. I in our series has been praised by Harold C. Schonberg in American Record Guide, by Jed Distler in International Piano Quarterly, and by numerous critics in Europe. Fanfare called Grante, “a pianistic superman…and certainly, an artist one is avid to become more acquainted with.” Other Grante CDs were also well received worldwide by critics and listeners alike.
