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.

The Quiz ...

If your answers are correct, you will be entered into the contest to win a Bach CD.
Winners will be selected at random at the end of the month and notified by e-mail.
You may answer the quiz more than once but only your last entry will be counted.

You may also put the answers to the questions in an e-mail message and send it to:

Please note, multiple entries from a single person using alternate e-mail addresses
and names will be disqualified. Multiple entries from the same household are
accepted within reason. ( no pets, distant cousins, or dearly departed )

The Suite in A minor, BWV 995 was originally a work for solo Cello ( or, some argue, vice-versa ). Which Cello Suite was this?

The Fifth, BWV 1011

József Eötvös is also known for his extraordinary transcription of which Bach keyboard work?
The Goldberg Variations, BWV 988
