William Carter

William Carter’s exemplary musicianship is showcased to its fullest on this new recording of Bach’s own transcriptions for the lute.

Almost unplayable in parts many musicians take certain liberties with the music so that it flows more naturally, but Carter’s determined approach to authenticity sees the lutenist achieve the near impossible: playing the music as it was originally written.

Carter very subtly enhances BWV 1001, originally for unaccompanied violin, in keeping with Bach’s own perceived style, namely to only add ‘as much harmony as he found necessary.

Bach’s own mild refashioning of BWV 1006, originally a solo violin, allows Carter to highlight the relaxed and intimate nature of the music.

The final piece undergoes the most extensive reimagining as Bach expertly transforms the Fifth Cello Suite into a successful is it that Carter considers it to be, in understanding the essential nature and expressive qualities of the lute, ‘the most perfect piece of lute music in existence’.
