Hopkinson Smith - Lute

I had the pleasure of seeing Hopkinson Smith play in Berkeley earlier this year. The Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin are among my favorite Bach works and Hopkinson Smith has created a rich and enjoyable Lute transcription of these works. I highly recommend this recording. There are some MP3's of a couple of tracks available at http://www.hopkinsonsmith.com/

The Quiz ...

Which works from the Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin also exist as transcriptions for the Lute?

The Fugue from Sonata No. 1 in G minor BWV 1001 and Partita No. 3 in E Major BWV 1006

What ensemble did Hopkinson Smith form in the 1970's with Jordi Savall?

Hesperion XX
