Posted in category CD/DVD
World-famous classical guitar player John Williams released sixth album "Vivaldi, Etc.!" through his own JCW Recordings label , JMarch 29, 2019. The album includes the first time recording of Williams; solo arrangement of Vivaldi’s Concerto Op. 3, No. 9. Originally Vivaldi wrote this piece for lute in D major (RV 93), in the 1730s, Williams recorded it in the past with the Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra conducted by Janos Rolla in 1991.
Vivaldi, Etc! also includes pieces by Bach, Weiss, and Turlough O’Carolan.
“I recorded the Prelude, Fugue and Allegro many years ago, when I was about 22, but I find it so boring and so staid. A lot of people like Bach played like that; I, now, don’t. I really wanted to do it again, especially since I’ve learned more about the style." Willaims said.
