"A first chord, wide open, a brief moment of hesitation – and then the music begins. Quietly and composedly, truly simply yet touchingly it proceeds, at first letting on nothing about those last things it means to relate. Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672) intended his choral work for small ensemble, 'The Seven Words of our dear Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ,' to be a contemplation for the Holy Week; Hungarian composer György Kurtág (born 1926), rather than merely transcribing the work for two pianos has created a reduced and condensed version.

The piano duo Andreas Grau and Götz Schumacher use Kurtág's adaptation, appearing almost Protestant in its purism, as a powerful introduction and contrast to their recording of Olivier Messiaen's 'Visions de l'Amen.' Right in the middle of the war, in 1943, Messiaen drew on the fullness of life to create this seven-part cycle, interpreting the manifold meanings of the word 'Amen' in a splendor of sound. ...

Recommendation
Probably the most beautiful Bach music has been written by György Kurtág: Bach transcriptions of a gentle, enraptured and extremely sensual quality. 
A few short waltzes: Andreas Grau and Götz Schumacher are waltzing their way through the centuries – from Schubert to Wolfgang Rihm. 
Schubert and Ligeti? What appears at first sight to be a rather unusual constellation proves to be an essential combination on closer scrutiny.
