Bach, J S:

Sonata for solo violin No. 1 in G minor, BWV1001

Lute Suite No. 4 in E major, BWV1006a

Lute Suite No. 3 in G minor, BWV995


William Carter’s exemplary musicianship is showcased to its fullest on this new recording of Bach’s own transcriptions for the lute.

Almost unplayable in parts many musicians take certain liberties with the music so that it flows more naturally, but Carter’s determined approach to authenticity sees the lutenist achieve the near impossible: playing the music as it was originally written.

Carter very subtly enhances BWV 1001, originally for unaccompanied violin, in keeping with Bach’s own perceived style, namely to only add ‘as much harmony as he found necessary.

Bach’s own mild refashioning of BWV 1006, originally a solo violin, allows Carter to highlight the relaxed and intimate nature of the music.

The final piece undergoes the most extensive reimagining as Bach expertly transforms the Fifth Cello Suite into a successful is it that Carter considers it to be, in understanding the essential nature and expressive qualities of the lute, ‘the most perfect piece of lute music in existence’.

“Thus there is the soloists suppleness and flexibility of phrase; but there is also the obvious enjoyment of pure sonority and tints and shades of tone. There is a lovely use of 'notes inegales' in the Siciliana and the Courante of both suites as well, while other dance movements benfit from Carter's deceptively subtle, distinctive imagination.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2017

“Played with intimate understanding by William Carter. The introspective quality of his playing makes for some magical moments of stillness and relection and the focus of the recording itself adds to the effect.” Record Review, 17th June 2017

András Csáki (guitar)

There is no doubt that the lute played an important role in Bach's oeuvre: he composed and arranged works for solo lute throughout his career, moreover, the lute's particular sonority enriched several of his orchestral scores, too. His lute suites are currently often performed by guitarists on six-string guitar, that is one of the biggest technical and musical challenges. During his career each significant guitar player works tirelessly to make his own arrangement and experimenting his playing version and particular tuning.Andras Csaki is an outstanding guitarist and "he always chooses expression over showing off" (Kenneth Keaton, American Record Guide, 2011).

Johannes Monno (lute)

The lute was a very popular instrument in Bach’s day. The various types of lute had for centuries been influential in shaping the development of music. Certain musical terms are in fact directly derived from lute-playing technique, including the expression style brise, coined by Couperin to denote lute-like arpeggiated chords on the harpsichord. During the first half of the 18th century, Sylvius Leopold Weiss was particularly renowned and respected for his consummate mastery of the lute. In his treatise of 1727 on the theory and practice of playing the lute, Ernst Gottlieb Baron writes: “He has been the first to show that more could be done on the lute than was hitherto thought possible…” Reporting on a meeting between S.L. Weiss and J.S. Bach in 1739, Johann Elias Bach wrote the following in a letter to his pupil Johann Wilhelm Koch: “…we heard some very fine music when my cousin from Dresden, who came to stay for four weeks, gave several performances in our house together with the two famous lute-players Herr Weiss and Herr Kropfgans.” This musical acquaintance is likely to have begun much earlier, namely during J.S. Bach’s time in Cothen. Up until this point it was customary for lute music to be composed only by lutenists- too great were the difficulties in coming to grips with the instrument’s tuning, its illogical limitations on polyphonic part-writing and its unique form of notation, known as tablature.

On this release, Bach's lute Suites are entrusted to four emerging talents of the guitar, all of whom have been taught at the Conservatorio "Arrigo Pedrollo" of Vicenza. An important corpus of music is thus presented in four interpretations that are different and, in a sense, complementary; what they share, however, is a degree of artistic maturity that - at such an early stage of one's professional parable - certainly constitutes an extraordinary accomplishment.
