  • December 17, 2013 Recommended Bach transcriptions

    I have had this book for several years. I have spent considerable time attempting to master and memorize the pieces in this book. These are important repertoire pieces that every player should aspire to. I am a self-taught, intermediate player. The CD is invaluable. If you want to learn...

    these pieces by listening to Julian Bream, John Williams or Segovia, good luck. Their level of ornamentation and Baroque techniques will leave you wondering "Can you really really do that on a guitar?". Javier Calderone's playing on the CD is straight forward. He uses some ornamentation, but no where near what you would hear in other players, for example Sharon Isbin or Jason Vieaux. His playing approach is very conducive for learning. The pieces are all recorded at the tempo they should be performed at. There are other software packages and tools to slow them down if needed. The transcriptions are true to the CD. I found some of the fingerings to be over complicated, and simplified them to my taste

  • February 25, 2006 Great!

    Having bought this as my first music book I assumed they were all this good but went on to find out differently. The CD is not slowed down luckily and is so fabulously played that it's a treat just to listen to on its own. It's too bad...

    not all products are up to this standard of quality.
