Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

It was Francisco Tárrega, composer and guitarist, who first transcribed Bach's music for his own instrument, offering colour, tonal variety and clarity in an exploration of counterpoint. Tristan Manoukian's transcription of the Partita No. 2 honours the precedent in its virtuosic and expressive writing. It is possible that the Suite and the Prelude, Fugue and Allegro were originally conceived for the so-called "luteharpsichord", a keyboard strung with gut that sounded like a lute. Bach's version of Vivaldi's Violin Concerto transforms and refashions it, and the guitar transcription is perfectly suited to convey the richness of its invention. Prizewinning guitarist Judicaël Perroy is one of the most exciting talents to have emerged in years.

David's Review Corner
If you have a need for Bach's music transcribed for a modern guitar, then this must be as good as they come. As Bach was not averse to selling his music transcribing into any number of versions so as to feed his ever growing family, he was also to compose many works in an ambiguous state as to the instrument intended. So here we have a disc devoted to four extended works, three intended for harpsichord, and a Lute Suite that might well have been composed for the lute-harpsichord, a hybrid keyboard instrument that resembled the sound of the lute. Without seeing the guitar scores it would appear that the transcriptions come directly, and with minimum intervention, from Bach's original scores. ... the much experienced young Frenchman, Judicael Perroy, has a very good feel for Baroque music both in shape and style... clarity of his playing and the unfailing accuracy of intonation. The Canadian recording is exemplary.
