I can't believe I'm the first to submit this recording to the database! These violin sonatas transcribed for guitar are just wonderful. Bach never wrote a note for guitar, but you could never tell that by listening to this. The phrasing, chordal colorings, are all just unmistakably Bach! Goluses handles the whole thing with marvelous sensitivity and finesse. A remarkable recording, not to be missed. A classical guitar masterpiece.
