Rupert Boyd Plays Prelude, BWV 1006a by Bach

Rupert Boyd plays Prelude in E Major, BWV 1006a by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). This comes via his YouTube Channel. This recording is featured on Boyd’s upcoming release, The Guitar (Sono Luminus), available 04.26.2019. Pre-order via Amazon. I’ll doing a promo post for the album as well but for now enjoy this excellent performance filled with clear voice separation and beautiful phrasing.

Sheet music via Amazon: Bach Lute Suites (Koonce) or the Zigante Edition or this Elliot Fisk edition which I’ve never seen. Koonce is pretty solid but nice to have multiple editions when it comes to Bach. Some people also just play the violin version these days with a few extra bass notes.
