Paulo Martelli plays Bach

Brazilian guitarist extraordinaire, Paulo Martelli, interprets the music of Johann Sebastian Bach in a beautifully sensitive and profound way. The added resonance of his 11-string guitar enhance the the aura of Bach’s Adagio, BWV1056 enough to make me confess that I would like more strings.

This video comes via the Guitar Coop in Brazil. As with all of their videos, it is shot with extreme quality on both the audio and video fronts.

If you feel compelled to listen to more, enjoy this magestic performance of Paulo playing the Gigue from Bach’s Cello Suite Nº2, BWV1008.
