Bach, "Bourree in Bm (BWV 1002)"
Transcription and Fingering: Renato Bellucci
The Bourree in B minor from BWV 1002 is perhaps one of the greatest Baroque pieces ever written. It is lively and well balanced and it fits the guitar so beautifully that it is hard to believe it was not actually written for the guitar. Bach was without a doubt a gifted musician and he fills this beauty with touches of geniality that make you shiver. I made my first transcription and fingering of the work with Maestro Abel Carlevaro in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1986. I recorded the piece in 1990 and prepared this final transcription and fingering this 26th of November 2014 for all my students and friends.
