The Beijing-born guitarist Xuefei Yang has recorded her first album of baroque music, an all-Bach programme anchored by three concertos newly arranged for guitar and string quartet. Bach Concertos is an exciting, innovative album in which she has transcribed for the guitar some of Bach’s familiar violin concertos and other works, hoping to establish these new arrangements as noteworthy repertoire for the guitar and to expand the concerto repertoire for that instrument. Xuefei complements the concertante repertoire with solo guitar arrangements of the Violin Sonata No. 1 BWV 1001, the Prelude in C Major from the Well-Tempered Clavier BWV 846 and the Air on a G string from the Orchestral Suite in D major BWV 1068.

There is no doubt that the lute played an important role in Bach's oeuvre: he composed and arranged works for solo lute throughout his career, moreover, the lute's particular sonority enriched several of his orchestral scores, too. His lute suites are currently often performed by guitarists on six-string guitar, that is one of the biggest technical and musical challenges. During his career each significant guitar player works tirelessly to make his own arrangement and experimenting his playing version and particular tuning.Andras Csaki is an outstanding guitarist and "he always chooses expression over showing off" (Kenneth Keaton, American Record Guide, 2011).

The lute was a very popular instrument in Bach’s day. The various types of lute had for centuries been influential in shaping the development of music. Certain musical terms are in fact directly derived from lute-playing technique, including the expression style brise, coined by Couperin to denote lute-like arpeggiated chords on the harpsichord. During the first half of the 18th century, Sylvius Leopold Weiss was particularly renowned and respected for his consummate mastery of the lute.

I often imagined the instructions Bach might give the performer of his music in the present day. What might he say? Describing Bach as a conductor in the 18th century, J.M. Gesner said he was full of rhythm in every part of his body. Bach himself stated his priorities in the title of his keyboard works: …above all to achieve a singing style. Knowing what a phenomenal organist and improviser Bach was, his example to us must be obvious. The music must live in the here and now- forever new. (Ismo Eskelinen) Ismo Eskelinen s career began when he was 17, spurred on by many prizes.

The encounter of two geniuses is the background for this CD. In 1739 chamber lutenist Silvius Leopold Weiss visited Johann Sebastian Bach in Leipzig where they competed in friendly improvisation contests. Even though Bach probably played the harpsichord on this occasion, Johannes Pramsohler and Jadran Duncumb attempt a reconstruction of the encounter; besides the magnificent Suite in A Major, BWV 1025 – a joint work of both composers – the programme includes solo works for lute and the famous Partita in D Minor. Bach's private secretary wrote at the time: “Something extra special is happening here.”
