[8.573676] Bach English Suites (Montenegrin Guitar Duo)

The versatility of the suite form proved well suited to Johann Sebastian Bach in his instrumental works, and the English Suites are no exception. These are distinct from Bach’s other suites with their quasi-improvisatory opening Preludes, and further movements encompassing a wide range of moods and styles from lively dances to the pensive intensity of the slow Sarabandes. Listen to the @MONTENEGRIN GUITAR DUO’s unique take on these suites.
