The first of the Montenegrin Guitar Duo‘s two volumes of Bach English Suites was released in 2015 and received excellent reviews. American Record Review commented:
“These are fine transcriptions, brilliantly played. The faster movements are played with infectious rhythmic energy and joy. Ornaments sparkle like firecrackers, and some of the slower movements are simply ravishing—listen to the sarabande from the second suite and be awashed in beauty!”
The second volume will be available from 11th May and can be pre-ordered here.
