Guitar Duo Recital: Amadeus Guitar Duo - HANDEL, G.F. / VIVALDI, A. / BACH, J.S. / FRANCK, C. (Baroque Moments)

J.S. Bach’s Italian Concerto and monumental Chaconne (heard here in the famous Busoni transcription) form the cornerstones of this disc of Baroque favourites performed on two guitars by the Amadeus Guitar Duo. One of Vivaldi’s most famous concertos, the D major RV 93 originally written for lute is transcribed to excellent effect for guitar duo. Franck’s Prélude, Fugue et Variation, a work inspired by the organ transcriptions of J.S. Bach, illustrates further how adept the Amadeus Guitar Duo is at reinventing these popular pieces for its own medium.
