Chaconne

Description
Chaconne by J S Bach was originally written for solo violin. A couple of hundred years later the piece was transposed to guitar by Andres Segovia. Here in a shortened and slightly modernized version, though I have kept many parts as they were originally written by Bach because I don't want to do too much change to something so beautiful and perfect.

I should mention that I owe Segovia a lot for his way of interpreting Bach. Many others have submittied to an idea that Bach is to be played steady, not with temper, almots stale. Andres Segovia on the other hand played Bach with spanish temperament and patos. And I love it.

Some of you have heard this track before as I first had it posted in 2005.

The photo is of Bach's own handwriting.

Beautiful
Really like the development at 1:16 (purists beware!). A fine recording, too: that rich full low end is unconventional but satisfying.

The master
Bach was/is surely that, and you do him wonderful justice with this delicate recording of this Chaconne. What a pleasant joy to hear this this morning. I do like the contemporary touches you have given to this piece. Old J.S. is, no doubt, smiling on you.

Really
nice of you Paul. Well I wonder what he would say about the way we treat his pieces today. And I wonder how we would react if we could hear the way of 1720.

Martin
thank you MartinD28! Well you know I am a lover of Martin guitars. The one I have now is a D16GT, a cheaper model but it plays so well (though I didn't have it in 2005 when recording this piece).

I wouldn't have guessed this were Bach had I not read your notes. How wonderful that classical pieces can be adapted and given a new lease of life. This is a lovely interpretation.

Guitar player since 11. Can't play other instruments than acoustic guitars, well maybe aside from instruments that are tuned the same way; like ukulele or bass guitar. In younger years I took inspiration from classical guitar, American acoustic... [see more]
