About this release

The repertoire for the modern guitar dates only as far back as the early 19th century, with the composers Guiliani and Sor. Before that, although many pieces of music were arranged for this most domesticated of instruments, none has survived. This release contains two of the great masterpieces of Baroque instrumental
music -- the Chaconne from J.S. Bach's D minor Partita for solo violin BWV1004, and Handel's keyboard Chaconne. The polyphonic quality of the modern guitar enables arrangers to transcribe music for plucked instruments such as the lute or harpsichord. The aim of this CD is to widen the repertoire of the classical guitar with some beautiful Baroque masterpieces.

Other information:
- Recorded in 2008.
- Booklet notes included.
- Enno Voorhorst has recorded several albums for Brilliant Classics, including music by Bach, Ponce and Barrios.
