The much anticipated 5th French Suite by J.S. Bach has finally been published in its entirety for classical guitar by internationally acclaimed Argentinian virtuoso Nestor Ausqui. This sui generis collection has been widely sought after by guitarists, whom for many years only could attain fragmented pieces of the suite. Now the entire suite is available for the first time!

"The transcriber must understand the essence and intent of the original, and then in the transcription, create the impression that the music was indeed originally written for the guitar. In this transcription of the 5th French Suite, Nestor Ausqui has accomplished this brilliantly."
