When it originally was released - Sharon Isbin: Bach for Guitar on the Erato/Warner Classics label was the first classical Bach recording on guitar with baroque performance practice techniques, Isbin collaborated with noted Bach scholar and keyboard artist Rosalyn Tureck on the editions performed on the disc. The CD includes all four lute suites by Johann Sebastian Bach, including Suite in E Major, BWV 1006a, Suite in G Minor, BWV 995, Suite in E Minor, BWV 996, and Suite in C Minor, BWV 997. Ms. Isbin calls the Suites "among the most challenging and musically rewarding works in the classical guitar repertoire."
