With Johann Sebastian Bach's seven toccatas, Claire Huangci presents herself as an equally versatile and virtuosic interpreter of baroque repertoire.

The recording was released on 10 September on the Berlin Classics label. Ferruccio Busoni’s transcription of the world famous Bach D minor Toccata, which has the work played in romanticised manner on a piano keyboard instead of a mighty Baroque organ, provides a
captivating start and wets our appetite for the original Bach and all of his seven toccatas. They were written during Bach’s years in Weimar and bring him to life as a composer well versed in the serious art of Baroque counterpoint, yet the pieces contrast this mastery with improvisational, virtuoso runs, and dreamy slow passages.
