J.S. Bach on 8-string guitar. Adagio and Fuga BWV 1003

Many thanks to Soltirefa for introducing me to this magnificent artist. Herewith a mesmerising and towering performance of the first two movements on the A minor violin sonata with adaptations from the keyboard version BWV 964.

He really is good, I agree. The word that springs to mind as I listen to him playing is "purity."

His BWV 1003 Allegro is also really good.

I remember back in the e-borneo forum days (late 1990s early 2000s) that Patrick Mailloux (the luthier of his 8-string in that video you posted) was just getting started making guitars. Congrats to him for his success.
