Mike Marshall and Caterina Lichtenberg have announced the publication of the full transcriptions of their recent J.S. Bach recording.

Two separate books include Bach's Two-Part Inventions, Organ Duets and Canons from The Art of the Fugue as presented on the recording.

Talking about the books with us, Mike Marshall told us, "Book One is a notation book divided into two parts: the first part of this book is arranged for Treble Clef for the mandolin (violin) and Bass Clef for the mandocello (cello). We included all of fingerings used on the recording.

"The second part of this book is arranged for two Treble Clef instruments: two mandolins (violins) or mandolin and octave mandolin or two guitars/flutes, or whatever.

"The second book is tablature, also divided into two parts: the first part is tablature for mandolin and mandocello, the second part is tablature for two mandolins or mandolin and octave mandolin."

Book Samples

Both books are available exclusively from Elderly Instruments.
