About Chaconne

Ferruccio Busoni (1866–1924), an Italian composer and pianist, made significant contributions through his creative transcriptions of Johann Sebastian Bach’s works. His fascination with Bach’s music led him to reimagine compositions with virtuosity, adding unique touches to bring the timeless beauty of the Baroque era to a broader audience.

One of Busoni’s most renowned transcriptions is the “Chaconne” from Bach’s Violin Partita No. 2. This monumental work for piano captures Bach’s essence while infusing Busoni’s expressive interpretations. The transcription showcases Busoni’s virtuosic technique, expanding the tonal possibilities of the piano.

Beyond the “Chaconne,” Busoni transcribed organ works, chorale preludes, and keyboard suites, often adding ornamentations and harmonic explorations in the late-Romantic style. His approach reflected a belief in tradition and the evolution of musical styles, preserving and revitalizing the past.
