by Louis Valentine Johnson

I very much enjoyed arranging, playing, and recording this short gorgeous piece, originally written for cello, it is a famous prelude from another lifetime which shares and illustrates the intricate beauty of Bach's art.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bach composed this prelude in the key of G major for the cello. Most of us guitarists play this work in the key of D major, and I am pleased to play my arrangement here for you of this bright optimistic Bach.
One of the great pleasures of playing the guitar is being able to make Bach's music, which was originally composed for solo lute, cello, or violin come to life! No, there are no Bach works specifically written for guitar, but the polyphonic capabilities of our six strings allow us to realize the art of Bach’s magnificent compositions when we play them with the beautiful rich voice of our sonorous, and intimate instrument.
After hearing a guitar version of the famous Bach Chaconne in d-minor from the Solo Violin Suite, an accomplished violinist friend of mine commented about how much better Bach sounds on the guitar than on bowed strings!
Have you had any experiences like this? We invite you to enjoy this lovely composition!
