1. Comment fy Farhan Malik (October 26, 2011:
Concerto in F Minor, BWV 1056 was listed Bach-Busoni as stated on the CD. However, Busoni did not make an arrangement of this concerto. Borovsky plays the regular Bach Concerto in its standard form, not a transcription or arrangement. Because he plays the D Minor Concerto in Busoni's arrangement it was just assumed the F Minor is also in a Busoni arrangement, but it's not. This error goes all the way back to the original 78 rpm releases of these Concerto recordings.
