Benjamin Grosvenor Explores Hidden Connections Between Works Written Centuries Apart. In this new recording Benjmain explores works by great composers paying tribute to their predecessors. Amongst these works, Mendelssohn looks back to the Prelude & Fugue form made so popular by Bach; and Franck does likewise (adding a Chorale as a central section to his work). Busoni takes Bach s great solo violin Chaconne, presenting it in a bold and imaginative transcription for piano; Chopin breathes new life in to the traditional Barcarolle of Venetian gondoliers, followed ten years later by Lizst s tribute to Italian folksong, Venezia e Napoli.
