(flatpicking the partitas)
Have a listen!
This is the result of over a year of lockdown, during the course of which all musicians were obliged to find something to do that didn't include audiences. Tricky for touring players!
Here's a brief excerpt from the booklet notes:
"The first, and most important, thing for me to point out is that this is most definitely not a classical guitar recording. The pieces contained herein were all composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) for solo flute, cello or violin and would ordinarily be considered to be ‘classical’ music. However, I am most certainly not a classical guitarist and have never been trained as such. My background consists of quite a wide variety of things: swing jazz, folk, bluegrass and traditional music from Ireland, Scotland & elsewhere all played with a flatpick (plectrum) on a steel-strung acoustic guitar. Many recordings of this music exist played by really excellent classical (nylon-strung) guitarists who, of course, would never dream of going anywhere near a plectrum, or steel strings."
