Catalog: CKD300
Format: CD

Linn’s reissue of Nigel North’s 'Bach on the Lute' puts back into print popular, benchmark performances originally recorded and released in the mid-1990s in a new-look, 4CD collection. Mr. North applied his encyclopedic knowledge and instinctive flair for the lute to transcriptions and arrangements of Bach’s works for violin and cello, a common practice started by the composer himself. ‘North's intelligent playing - nothing is overstated, simply played for what it is - has a natural eloquence. … the arrangements are distinctive but true to the music.’ The Scotsman
