Drew Henderson Plays Bach BWV 1003


Drew Henderson, GuitarThe fantastic Canadian guitarist Drew Henderson plays the Adagio and Fuga from J.S. Bach’s second Sonata for Solo Violin BWV 1003. In his own words: “This arrangement draws upon material from Bach’s own arrangement of this piece for keyboard BWV 964. Seeing how Bach alters his own works to suit a different instrument was an incredibly educational experience. A change of key, notes, added harmony and tempo (Grave vs Adagio…for guitar i believe the former works better) gave me a lot of options for this arrangement.” Guitar by Patrick Mailloux (Spruce/cedar 8-string double-top).
