American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Bach's music transcribes easily. It's just great music and seems to work beautifully regardless of what is playing it. But he did write works for lute (all playable, and interchangeable, on the guitar): four suites; the Prelude, Fugue, and Allegro; and a separate fugue and prelude. Even those include transcriptions, though Bach's own, of his E-major Violin Partita and the Fifth Cello Suite.
