In the sixth and final volume of his complete works for piano by Brahms, the Irish pianist Barry Douglas - which one recalls Rafla first prize at the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1986, the first non-Russian since Van Cliburn in 1958 - we present the composer historian, arranger and teacher. Historian, he is with his rooms in the old style - gigue, sarabande, canon -; and at the same time, arranger with the gavotte from Gluck. Arranger, he is with his own Hungarian Dances rewritten for piano solo (the original being for piano four hands), and in Walk Rákóczy (also known as the Hungarian March) from Berlioz; and at the same time teacher since the studies we present Douglas are written respectively by Chopin, Bach and Weber - the latter especially in a pretty sneaky arrangement of the Chaconne, originally for solo violin by Brahms for the left hand alone .
