Album information

Bach's lute music has never sounded better. Includes the Suites in C major, A minor and B Flat Major 

The benchmark against which other Baroque lute recordings are measured, this series remains popular.  North applies his encyclopaedic knowledge and instinctive flair for the lute, to the transcriptions and arrangements of works for violin and cello by J.S. Bach, a practice started by the composer himself who frequently re-scored existing pieces if a work for lute was required. The ever-popular Cello Suites are transformed when played on lute. The instrument allows North to sustain and clarify the counterpoint, harmony and bass line which is sketched in the original, creating an authentic, yet quite unique interpretation.
