Product notities

There's probably not a lot that can be added in terms of historical background and tales that surround these most famous of variations by a certain J.S.Bach. Tales and transcriptions of varying levels of height, quality and reliability abound, so what can a classical guitar duo from a small country town in Northern NSW possibly bring to the continuing history of this magnificent work? The story of our own interpretation began in late 2005, when Ben Thorn, director of the New England Bach Festival, asked us if we'd like to perform at the upcoming festival. Of course our answer was yes, although we'd have to think about some possible repertoire suitable for transcription. After much listening and research, there seemed to be only one piece that kept reinforcing itself as a perfect choice and the more we listened to it, the more we heard guitar music... After initial trials & discussion about the possible incorporation of many different types of guitars, we settled on keeping the transcription for 2 of the classical variety and decided that one of us should start transcribing from the beginning, the other from the end and that hopefully we'd meet somewhere around variation 15 and 16!! We managed it - but what a process! In keeping with the famous tale of the Goldbergs being played as a cure for insomnia, there have been countless late nights of transcribing, rehearsal and recording which would have driven us (and probably a few others) completely round the bend if it wasn't for the fact that Bach wrote such indescribably beautiful music... We feel that the guitar duo lends an intimacy to the work, while still referencing the immediacy of the harpsichord and the variety of tone colours enjoyed from the piano, while the blending of two guitars and two players (but one duo...) strengthens and highlights the inherent conversational character within the music. So here it is... Bach's towering masterpiece arranged for two classical guitars by the aforementioned guitar duo from a small country town in Northern NSW, Australia. We hope that you enjoy this document of our journey so far...
