about

Prayers and Dances II - From the “Six Solo” by J.S.Bach arranged for solo guitar by Derek Gripper. This studio performance recorded by South African veteran engineer Murray Anderson at Milestone Studios is a single take “live” performance of the Second Sonata and Partita arranged for guitar by Derek Gripper. This collection of dances and the four movement Sonata contains one of music’s great masterworks; the Ciaccona which has for a long time represented the pinnacle of the repertoire for violinists, pianists and guitarists.

The recording itself is an old-school retrospective using vintage mics and avoiding any kind of digital post production.
