New Release and Review: Bach Trio Sonatas (2 Gtrs)

Clear Note Publications very recently released Gregg’s arrangements of three Bach Trio Sonatas (BWV 525, 529, 530) for two guitars.  Click here for more on these fine works.

There is already a positive review of the Sonatas that appeared online on April 16, 2014:

This arrangement is one for the ages. Gregg Nestor has created a masterful edition of some of Bach’s most sublime music. Everything about this is first rate – the distribution of the parts, the fingerings, and all notational elements combine to make this a “must have” book for every guitarist’s library. Congratulations to Gregg Nestor and to Clear Note for its publication.
