Comments:Review by Jan Hanford:
Performance: Beautiful
Recording: Excellent

Jozsef Eötvös has once again presented us with another flawless and beautiful recording of Bach works. This time he transcribes the lute works for guitar. His performance is almost harpsichord-like, with clear articulation and separation of the voices.

He is an extraordinary musician and his transcription and performance is a delightful addition to the recorded works of Bach. I am very much looking forward to Volume 2.
