Bach: Lute Works
Label: HARMONIA MUNDI
Andreas Martin, theorbo
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) Lute Compositions: Suite BWV997; Prelude BWV999; Suite BWV995, transcribed from Cello Suite BWV1011 by J.S. Bach; Fugue BWV1000, transcribed from Violin Sonata BWV1001, by J.S. Bach
Bach composed little for the lute, an instrument which - so it seems - he never played. Andreas Martin performs here four of the seven works known to be written directly for this instrument.
