I love music.

I write about the music I like and have purchased for the benefit of better understanding it and sharing my preferences with others.

Bach Overtures

The Brazilian Guitar Quartet plays the orchestral suites of Johann Sebastian Bach on Delos, led by Paul Galbraith. I have come to appreciate more Bach's four suites now after hearing them in increasingly diverse arrangements, this one in particular for four guitars. There's a real clarity of line when you reduce the scoring to just our instruments. Add to that, a real clarity in the recording, and you have a real winner on your hands. All the trills are there, and despite the the instruments are a few generations younger, Bach's music survives with its baroque embellishments with a quite appropriate sound. I like the sound of guitars, and with Bach's music so well played, I can't go wrong. Warmly recommended.
