Bach's Ciaccona published by Chanterelle and Allegra Verlag
March 27, 2015
The first piece published in my new guitar series with Chanterelle and Allegra Verlag, is the famous Ciaccona by Johan Sebastian Bach. It will be presented in Frankfurt for the Musikmesse 2015.
"This new transcription of the famous Ciaccona from the Second Partita BWV 1004 by Johann Sebastian Bach, is the result of many years of research, both in style and interpretation. principally as a performer and a teacher. For my transcription, I have always kept foremost Bach’s original text from every point of view, while making an edition as suitable as possible for a plucked instrument. I have sought to re-call the emotional language and timbre of the past great interpretations of the piece on the Baroque lute, the Prince of instruments in Bach’s time. For a broader view of the expressive Baroque universe, I suggest reading some of the important historical treatises written by musicians such as J.J. Quantz or C.P.E. Bach."
