Ernesto Tamayo Plays Bach

Sonata for Solo Violin in A minor, BWV 1003
Prelude, Fugue & Allegro in D major, BWV 998
Sonata for Flute and Continuo in E minor, BWV 1034
     'An outstanding debut from 25 year-old Cuban guitarist, Ernesto Tamayo. It is always a joy to hear familiar Bach works transcribed for guitar. These works for violin are familiar to all of us. But Ernesto gives us much more, he puts a lot of himself into his interpretation. He is both technically skilled and exceptionally expressive.' - Jan Hanford - the J.S. Bach Home Page
