Have two minutes to spare? Of course you do. Skip a cat video if you have to. Here’s the fine SF-based guitarist Marc Teicholz playing the “Rondeau” from J.S. Bach’s “Partita No. 2,” BWV 826, originally written for violin, but played in this clip on a wonderful-sounding 1935 Hermann Hauser I guitar, which is one piece of the famous Russell Cleveland Collection currently being sold individually by the good folks at Guitar Salon International. You may recall that we were blown away by Marc when he played the premiere of Clarice Assad’s new concerto for guitar, O Saci-Pererê, at the Biasini Festival in San Francisco in January.
And no, it has not escaped our notice that yesterday (March 21) was Bach’s 331st birthday. Have a slice of German chocolate cake to celebrate!
