Review by Jan Hanford of the J.S. Bach Home Page|
Jozsef Eötvös has once again presented us with another flawless and beautiful recording of Bach works. This time he transcribes the lute works for guitar. His performance is almost harpsichord-like, with clear articulation and separation of the voices.
He is an extraordinary musician and his transcription and performance is a delightful addition to the recorded works of Bach. I am very much looking forward to Volume 2.
