Product Description

CD Description

From the nineteenth century transcriptions by Francisco Tárrega to those by John Duarte and Rick Foster, the tradition of performing J.S. Bachs music on the guitar has fashioned works of great beauty and transformative power. The two Chorale Preludes include the use of plucked strings, which impart serenity and clarity. The Cello Suite is especially well suited to the guitar, the aria-like beauty of its Sarabande being the height of elegance and nobility, whilst the Violin Partita No. 2, with its monumental Chaconne, translates to the guitar with hypnotic force. Graham Anthony Devine is one of the worlds foremost guitarists whose British Guitar Music (8.557040) was lauded as a winner in all respects beyond reproach. (MusicWeb International)

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 17 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD
A very beautiful recording. The guitarist performs these gorgeous, technically brilliant pieces with aplomb. The sound is very fine too, as Naxos is very capable of doing, especially in solo instrument recordings. Of course, the highlight is Bach's famous Chaconne in D minor, and in Graham Devine's hands it's a very moving piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing but still challenging. 14 Aug 2013

Not for everyone as ambient music, but when I'm coding it's just the job. Wasn't aware of this guitarist, but he's a dazzling player but somehow without making a grand technical statement; he gets it just right.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Devine Touch 23 Mar 2012
By Oscar O. Veterano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Graham Anthony Devine - J.S.BACH - GUITAR TRANSCRIPTIONS - Naxos

English guitar virtuoso Graham Anthony Devine has joined a long list of his predecessors in recording an all Bach program. As mentioned in Graham Wade's always informative liner notes, transcriptions for guitar of Bach's music have been done since the 19th century, so the overtly familiar feel of the material presented here should come as no surprise.
What is surprising (at least, for someone unfamiliar with his work) is the beauty of Mr. Devine's playing; subtle and dynamic, his interpretations of music originally intended for cello, violin or chorus mark him as a worthy inheritor of a tradition founded by Tarrega and Segovia.
This recording is highly recommended to guitar students and lovers of baroque music, but would somebody please take a decent photograph of the artist? The picture included in the liner notes makes him look like a soccer hooligan who's sneaked backstage and stolen a guitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! 12 Nov 2012

This is a beautiful recording. Graham's playing is divine. The dynamics and tonal color changes are spot on. You can't go wrong with this recording or any of his others. His interpretation and technique is rock solid.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites 2 Nov 2012
By Norman Bearrentine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not very knowledgeable about either classical music or guitar, but I love this guy's playing. I've heard a couple of other versions of Bach's Ciaccona, and his is my favorite.
