Comments:Philippe Allard said:

These two CDs contain only 2 works from Bach (still 18% of time playing). Nevertheless, a different approach, since Mr. Sosa uses only his left hand, which didn't seems to lower his capacities (I can compare since I had the privilege to be in his class about 30 years ago). The chaconne is a translation by Brahms, while the Chromatic fantasy and Fugue is his own. Very interesting translations which saves the "flavour" of the works.
