This set was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for "Best Instrumental Soloist Performance without Orchestra."
The Sonatas and Partitas were one of Bach's favorite works. According to a contemporary account, Bach often played them on the harpsichord. This flexibility of instrumentation was commonplace in Bach's time, and it has always been common for guitarists to transcribe music for their instrument. Therefore there are many versions of the Sonatas and Partitas for guitar, Andr������s Segovia's being the most famous.
Paul Galbraith puts his own twist on things, however. He feels that these 6 pieces were conceived as a single composition which tracks the birth, death and resurrection of Christ. For him to be able to perform these works in one go, Galbraith helped design an 8 stringed guitar that could be played somewhat like a cello, with an endpin that connects to a resonating chamber on the floor. While this may seem strange, once you hear this recording, there can be no doubt. Galbraith is incredibly musical, and has a dynamic range that is unmatched by any classical guitarist. Galbraith almost never pauses between movements, which helps pull the 32 movements together, but it can be draining on the ear. However, the power of the instrument and performer make this a recording to be treasured.
