    This is a 50 year dream of mine. It was the first piece I heard on classical guitar when I started lessons ( John Williams album, Variations, which I purchased on the way home after signing up for classical guitar lessons).  It is (most probably) beyond my abilities and will ( again, most probably) always be. But I can still dream. Really looking forward to this.

    • Jack Stewart this is indeed one of the most beautiful piece. Nothing prevents you to play parts of the work and working towards a long-term goal of playing the whole in a few months/years?

  • Hello Martin and Steve,

    will the slides be available for reference? ( as the Goldberg were)

    Thanks for the excellent session.

    I acquired the The Bach Chaconne for Solo Violin. A Collection of Views edited by Jon F. Eiche 

    An outstanding read to have in your library.

  • Another source covering Helga Thoene鈥檚 chorale quotations.

    Note these are quite different from Eduardo Fern谩ndez鈥檚 list of chorale quotations鈥.
