Warm and bright, with accuracy, agility, articulation, definition and clarity

Naxos Montenegrin Guitar Duo Bach English Suites II CD Cover

The Whole Note, Terry Robbins

There’s some superb guitar playing on J. S. Bach English Suites Nos.4-6 arranged for two guitars by the Montenegrin Guitar Duo of Goran Krívokapić and Danijel Cerović (Naxos 8.573676).

The excellent transcriptions are an absolute delight; the playing is warm and bright, with accuracy, agility, articulation, definition and clarity, all beautifully captured by the top-level Naxos team of Norbert Kraft and Bonnie Silver at the St. John Chrysostom Church in Newmarket.

Volume 1 of this outstanding two-CD set is available on Naxos (8.573473).
