Info for Johann Sebastian Bach
"I do not intend to evaluate the music of Johann Sebastian Bach in any form here. The basic situation for me in this respect is very simple: I have not been able to identify with any intellectual argumentation or analysis, for I have always had a feeling of incompleteness. No superlative seems sufficient to me. Regarding the tunes of Bach, the saying that music begins where the word ends is the truest one for me."
"I felt an inner attraction, an urge to be able to play his works that he had not essentially composed for piano. The main guiding principle in the concept of my transcriptions was to reproduce the original sounds as simply and clearly as possible. I did not strive for technical and acoustic virtuosity, nevertheless I found the performance of my own transcriptions a great challenge. Special congratulations and thanks to Misi Boros for taking on one of my favorite and memorable transcriptions and for joining our collaborative recording with his usual thorough preparation, deep understanding and courage."

For example Mihály Boros Brambauer (2003), who plays with distinction, finds a lot of joy in music, and at the same time is a little intellectual with a sense for arches and dynamics." (SZ 8 November 2013) In 2017, he gave a solo concert at the Palace of Arts (Budapest, Hungary)…with the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra. The concert recording was praised by the Guardian.
