Bach, J. S. - BWV 1001 Fugue - D09

Post by mike.janel » Tue Aug 14, 2018 7:20 pm

I have recently purchased a fantastic 2015 Dan Kellaway (fan braced) guitar, from a distinguished forum member.
I wanted to record something on it for quite some time but was in the middle of learning this magnificent Fugue and it didn't feel right to record anything else.
I still find this piece very challenging but could wait no longer, so please forgive my little screw-ups here and there (they are totally due to my limitation, not the guitars').

Wonderful playing. I'm still a beginner, but I thought you played some tough looking parts of the piece very well! That guitar (also) sounds fantastic by the way.

Thank you.
Each section by itself is not so hard technically, the thing is that there are not so many easy parts to sit back and relax.
This piece itself is musically challenging. Keeping each voice complete and in balance.

Such a lovely fugue, thank you for sharing. Your voicing is very clear, you're doing a great job with the piece.

Hit the nail on the head. The eternal challenge of Bach.

:bravo:
