Bach, J. S. - BWV 1007 Prelude - Video (auth. Stauffer guitar)

Post by Marek Cupak » Mon Jan 29, 2018 7:27 am


Played on an authentic early romantic period guitar made by Johann Georg Stauffer (1778 - 1853) in Vienna.

I do not own this instrument, but am glad I had the chance to have it borrowed for some time. Primarily, it was meant to be measured and examined by my colleague luthier http://www.okenicaguitars.com/ who builds new instruments in style of Lacote, Stauffer and other masters of 19th century, to gain some inspiration from. But I couldn't return it without doing some recordings for you :-)

Why do I play: http://marekcupak.com

Performed Oct. 2017

Very nicely played Marek.

The guitar sounds great. It seems very warm and full to me. Amazing for its age.

Good playing Marek. Impressive. I'll be honest, I don't like the arrangement, some odd things going on in there. And I'd love to hear such an important historical musical instrument strung as it was designed to be, with gut and silk, which can make such a difference. Still, it's always magical to get your hands on such instruments. I'm very happy to you.

I accept dislikes too, but they could be more constructive - what do you find odd?

It was borrowed for a few days and I was not allowed to change strings, sadly... but, as I didn't have any gut strings at the time, I'd put only an Acquila's nylgut on... I certainly may give the gut & silk a try one day!
