This book and accompanying audio make one of J.S. Bach's most enduring and fascinating instrumental works accessible to mandolin players: the Prelude in E Major from his solo sonata in E major for violin. The book and audio include fingerings, tablature and a slow performance of the piece. These materials are intended to make learning the virtuosic piece an attainable task. In recent years musicians outside of the classical genre have been learning and performing this work with regularity. Chris Thile, Bela Fleck and Mark O'Connor are notable examples. Their interest is in no doubt due to a desire to strengthen their musicianship as well as to add one of the great show-stopping solo pieces of all time to their shows. Includes access to online audio.
