What more can be said about the artistry of Paul Galbraith? Perhaps a brief run-down of what Paul did over the 18 months prior to this release will help jog memories:
- Delos released Paul’s inaugural recording, Paul Galbraith Plays Bach (DE 3232) in July of 1998. Paul transcribed all of the violin sonatas and partitas of Bach for his one-of-a-kind eight string guitar;
- After an interview on NPR’s All Things Considered, Paul Galbraith Plays Bach debuted on the Billboard Classical chart at #9 and stayed on the chart for nine weeks;
- Paul’s second release, Paul Galbraith Plays Haydn (DE 3239) was another success, and still continues to sell today;
- Paul was interviewed yet again on NPR in December 1999, which reignited sales for his first two solo recordings with Delos and the Brazilian Guitar Quartet’s first-ever recording, Essencia do Brasil. (DE 3245) Paul Galbraith Plays Bach Lute Suites has Paul returning to this most treasured of composers, again with all transcriptions done by Paul.
