Grammy Award-winning guitarist Jason Vieaux releases Bach, Volume 2: Works for Violin on Azica Records. A follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2009 album, Bach, Volume 1: Works for Lute, this second volume completes Vieaux’s Bach cycle. The guitarist says Bach’s music is “not only comforting and inspiring in its musical greatness, it’s humbling in how his notes, phrases, structures, compositional decisions, harmonic details, etc., are seemingly all-knowing (divine) and expressive (mortal) all at once, which is always a great respite in such a turbulent world. Every note gives the feeling that Bach has totally been there, done that, but somehow 1000 times more.”
