I am an avid "Reflections" listener (from the first show on....) and have read all of David Dubal's book, but I missed the title and artist of the Bach "Sheep May Safely Graze" transcription for solo piano on June 11...

It doesn't seem to be listed in their past show lineup (the title isn't obvious anyway), I have e-mailed them, but no reponse.

The transcription and performance was one of the most beautiful piano transcriptions I have ever heard!!!! I need to get the title & artist so I can buy the recording & the music---

I sure hope someone has an answer for me...
Thanks,

Mat

Sorry, Mat, no answer, but I am familiar with this work (I sang it in a choral festival), and I didn't know a piano transcription existed. It is beautiful, and I am very interested in this!

Maybe you can try a search on a CD site with the most popular Bach transcribers, like Busoni.

I am not sure of the program on that particular date, but recently Dubal played Grainger's transcription of this piece. Grainger titled it Blithe Bells. You need big hands for the opening measures since it's all in tenths.

There are many(at least 5) transcriptions of this piece.

according to the WQXR site, this was the programme that night:

LISZT Bagatelle sans tonalite
HAYDN Sonata 31 in A-flat: III Finale
GRAINGER Blithe Bells
BEETHOVEN Bagatelle, Op 126 No 6
SCRIABIN Etude, Op 8 No 3
PERSICHETTI Unroll the Flicker's Rousing Drum
MULLER Antillean Dances, Op 4

so pianoloverus is right, you're probably looking for the Grainger.

Angela Hewitt also has a CD out of Bach transcriptions, many of which are done by her.

Gargles in the rat race choir
Bent out of shape from society's pliers
Cares not to come up any higher
But rather get you down in the hole

Mat, the arrangement WAS done by Percy Grainger, who entitled it Blithe Bells.
The first pianist was American Joseph Smith and the second pianist was Englishman Martin Jones, so apparently Russians won't play this piece. I THINK the Grainger is in C, from plinking along with it after I recorded the program.
DD did NOT give the record lablels of theses two performances.

I was really impressed by this piece too, and dug around till I found a simplified version in one of my fake books. (in C and withOUT the minor section). My teacher had the sheet music for a voice/organ manual/organ pedal arrangement from the H.W.Grey Co. in NYC which I also played around with a bit.

An internet search found a 3 dollar adobe .pdf file for solo piano in Bb by Fabrizio Ferrari available at...
http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/score/SafelyGrazePf.html

I didn't really look very hard for the sheet music or a Midi of the Grainger arrangement (or "ramble") because I thought it might be a bit too advanced for me, but if anyone DOES find a source out there, I would be interested in looking at it.

Translations of the original words for this cantata are available here:
http://www.uvm.edu/~classics/faculty/bach/BWV208.html

and a CD with other Bach transcriptions by Grainger and Friedman is here, with some very extensive liner notes:
http://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/details/67344.asp

Pianoloverus, could you be more specific about the 5 solo piano transcriptions you know of? Publishers, samples available on net, etc.?

Gryphon, the show is on WQXR which is owned by NewYorkTimes and is NOT affiliated with NPR or any other network. The show is not archived but can be listened to ONCE each week on their website WQXR.com. 10 p.m. Wednesday EASTERN standard time. (so 9pm in Michigan) That's your one and only chance to catch it each week.

Really unplayable piano transcriptions of Bach's works? Godowsky. Have a Dorian CD 80117 with sonatas and suites for violin and cello transcribed by Godowsky, played by Thomas Labé (great pianist). That man, Godowsky, was a real sadistic

I have seen many but the only ones I can recall now are one by Egon Petri(might be available at music stores and two by Ignaz Friedman (much harder than the Petri and very difficult to find).

RKVS1- I saw in your profile that you are interested in math so you'd probably be interested to know that I teach high school math(but am much more interested in music!}.

Hmm... I've got a four disc set from Pearl (IF 2000) which purports to be all of Friedman's solo recordings 1926-1936, and it's not there. frown

Maybe Bach didn't get it written till the 40's??
