    Thanks to the astute observations of two loyal readers, I changed the attribution of the J.S. Bach Chaconne arrangement from Ferruccio Busoni to Johannes Brahms. Although the La Jolla Music Society’s program book lists Busoni as the Chaconne’s arranger, only the Brahms piano arrangement is for the left hand solo. There was no mention of this change at the recital, so I thank Bryan Verhoye and Geoffrey Clow for alerting me to this change made by the performer.

    Interestingly enough, this Brahms arrangement of the chaconne was also used by harpsichordist Jean Rondeau in his first Bach recording, but played with both hands because mainly of the lack of sustaining pedal. It also works wonderfully on the harpsichord: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ChKsMjIMFw
