Classical Sunday: Bach for Guitar

Two hours of Bach… Just the thing for a quiet Sunday morning.

Here is something to enjoy…  Although Bach did not compose for the lute a whole lot (and obviously nothing for the guitar), his music has been interpreted by guitar players, especially since Andrés Segovia.  The guitarist who is presenting Bach’s suites here is called Luigi Attademo, born 1972 in Bella Napoli, and you can read about him on his website – in English!

Have a beautiful last September day, everyone!

  1. Beautiful and profoundly interpreted music! Bach’s Lute Suites and Cello Suites can sound so good on the classical guitar (despite being sometimes very difficult to play). If you haven’t already, check out the “Segovia and Williams: Guitar Virtuosos Play Bach” album-it is absolutely outstanding!
