Summary:

One of the world’s leading flute virtuosos, Marina Piccinini presents unique transcriptions of Bach’s evergreen Flute Sonatas. Eschewing the typical piano or harpsichord accompaniment, Marina records these works as never before with a pair of guitars. And what better partners could Marina have than the Brasil Guitar Duo, winners of the 2006 Concert Artists Guild International Competition (New York), whose “maturity of musicianship and technical virtuosity … is simply outstanding,” according to Classical Guitar Magazine. It’s a natural combo for the Brazilian-Italian Marina, and this popular repertoire played on popular instruments serves the music exceptionally well. Rounding out the 2-CD set is Marina’s exquisite version of the Solo Partita in A minor.
