Johann Sebastian BACH - Obra completa

Se existe um sobrenome que esteja diretamente ligado a música, esse sobrenome é Bach. Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750) é procedente de uma família de músicos alemães cujos membros eram músicos ambulantes, organistas e cantores em Thuringe desde o século X. Órfão aos 10 anos, Johann Sebastien Bach recebe uma sólida formação de base no órgão, no cravo, no violino e no canto. Além desta bagagem, é um autodidata. Foi pelo estudo minucioso das obras dos compositores famosos do seu tempo que ele assimilou a arte da composição.
Deixo aqui o link para que baixem a obra completa de alaúde desse grande e mirífico compositor. As BWV's presentes em tal link são as seguintes: 995, 996, 997, 998, 999, 1000 e 1006.
Aqui podem encontrar um álbum em que o famigerado e virtuoso alaudista Lutz Kirchhof interpreta, de maneira esplêndida, a obra do emérito Bach.

Arrangements by David Russell

While all of this recording is genius, there are two movements that show Mr. Russell's genius in a special light. 1. The Passacaglia from the Handel suite. Anyone who has heard Russell play this in concert needs at least 5 minutes to get her or his breath back. Perhaps the single most brilliant transcription in the world of solo guitar. (Though, in a field of many transciptions, there are many contentors for this honor.) 2. The Andante from the Bach suite.
Without any irony, this is "a heartbreaking work of staggering genius." If you want clean playing, soulful performances, great musicality...David Russell is it, on guitar. - Mike Shanahan
