Where works required significant alteration to be playable on guitar, the questionable parts have been reconstructed to arrive at the best solution which is the closest to the original. Fingerings have been added only where necessary. Extensive notes on the arranging process are included. Notation only. 128 pages. Overall Difficulty: Advanced.

Although Johann Sebastian Bach did not write any music for the guitar, transcriptions of his unaccompanied string music and music for lute have long been a part of the guitar repertoire. Despite the respect that this music commands among musicians and audiences debate still exists as to what constitutes an appropriate means of transcribing, interpreting and performing this music on the guitar. It is this debate that prompted this long-awaited edition of Bach's unaccompanied cello suites by scholar and concert guitarists Stanley Yates. This definitive work includes performance scores, comparison scores and an invaluable 40-page guide entitled Arranging, Interpreting, and Performing the Music of J.S. Bach. Furthermore, the author offers comments on his arranging process and suggestions on using this edition including: ornamentation, slurs, fingerings, notation, and implementation of the comparison scores. Written in standard notation in guitar-friendly keys. The companion CD included contains Suites 1-3 only. 196 Pages. Overall Difficulty:  Intermediate.

J. S. Bach: Goldberg Variations BWV 988 Compact Disc performed by József Eötvös  -
$15.00 - Compact Disc EJ-01WZ
Check Out Now
Bach's impressive sequence of variations, known to us as the "Goldberg Variations," was written for a keyboard instrument about 1741 as the 4th part of "Clavier Übung." Allegedly, it was intended to be performed by Johann Gottlieb Goldberg. The original version of the Goldberg Variations, written for harpsichord, is a highly taxing piece for any performer. It requires crossed hands, with double and chord trills. The guitar version involves additional hardships, such as the transcription for a modern instrument in general and, in particular, achieving idiomatic solutions for articulations problems caused by the fundamental difference between keyboard and plucked instruments. Performer József Eötvös here performs his own transcriptions, wherein the interpretation and the soloist's concept of articulation emphasize his deep knowledge of style, making it almost seem that the work was originally composed for guitar.
