From the nineteenth century transcriptions by Francisco Tárrega to those by John Duarte and Rick Foster, the tradition of performing J.S. Bach’s music on the guitar has fashioned works of great beauty and transformative power. The two Chorale Preludes include the use of plucked strings, which impart serenity and clarity. The Cello Suite is especially well suited to the guitar, the aria-like beauty of its Sarabande being the height of elegance and nobility, whilst the Violin Partita No. 2, with its monumental Chaconne, translates to the guitar with hypnotic force. Graham Anthony Devine is one of the world’s foremost guitarists whose British Guitar Music (8.557040) was lauded as ‘a winner in all respects… beyond reproach’.
