List of transcriptions of compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach’s music has often been transcribed for other instruments.

Bach's lifetime

*Bach himself was an inveterate transcriber of his works for other musical forces. For examples, consult the following articles:
**Sonatas and partitas for solo violin
**Violin Concerto in A minor (Bach)
**Violin Concerto in E major (Bach)
**Double Violin Concerto (Bach)
**Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565

Classical era

*Working at the behest of Gottfried van Swieten, Mozart arranged some of the fugues from the Well-Tempered Clavier for string trio.

Romantic era

*Ferruccio Busoni made a piano transcription of the chaconne from the Violin Partita in D minor, as did Brahms and others.
*"Ave Maria" by Charles Gounod is based on the first prelude of the Well-Tempered Clavier.
*Romantic guitarist Tárrega transcribed a variety of Bach works, including his Fugue from Violin Sonata No. 1.
*Liszt arranged Prelude and Fugue in A minor, BWV 543 and Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542 for piano.
* Edward MacDowell (1860-1908) produced "Six Little Pieces after sketches by J. S. Bach" (1890) for piano solo.

20th century and later

*Sergei Rachmaninoff made a transcription of the violin partita in E major, BWV 1006, including the following movements: prelude, gavotte and gigue.
*Leopold Stokowski made a large number of transcriptions for full orchestra, including the Toccata and Fugue in D minor for organ, which appeared in the movie Fantasia
* Alexander Siloti made many piano transcriptions of Bach, most famously his Prelude in B minor based on Bach's Prelude in E minor BWV 855a.
*Andrés Segovia was famous for his playing arrangements of Bach works transcribed for classical guitar, such as his very difficult Chaconne from the Violin Partita in D minor.
*Schoenberg arranged for orchestra Bach's "St Anne" organ prelude and fugue in Eb major
* Webern arranged the ricercar from "The Musical Offering" for orchestra.
*The Modern Jazz Quartet frequently performed compositions of Bach as transcribed for the instruments of their ensemble.
*Violinists interested in historically informed performance, notably Andrew Manze, have created "anti-transcriptions"; that is, reconstructed hypothetical original versions for violin, of the Toccata and Fugue in D minor for organ.
