The Helios Guitar Quartet plays the complete 24 preludes and fugues of J.S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. Arranged by Michael Kudirka, each prelude and fugue remains in its original key, and with the use of an octave guitar for the soprano part and a 7-string guitar for the bass part, not a single pitch needed to be altered from the original.
Contrasting music from the Middle Ages and Renaissance with music of the 20th and 21st centuries. Includes music for solo guitar and lute as well as guitar duos, viola da gamba, and medieval lute with vielle.
