About

"I am privileged to join forces here with my great friend and mentor Albert Fuller, who has known these Sonatas over the course of a lifetime, and whose wisdom has been of inestimable value in the process of transforming these works conceived for the two manuals and pedal of the organ into a set of six Sonatas for guitar and harpsichord. Here the guitar plays the upper of the two organ keyboards while the harpsichord assumes the role of the second keyboard (right hand) and the pedal (left hand). Albert plays here on a harpsichord made by Tom and Barbara Wolf - the nearest thing we have yet had to the sound of the German harpsichords of Bach’s time."

Guitarist Eliot Fisk is known world wide as a charismatic performer famed for his adventurous and virtuosic repertoire. He is also celebrated for his willingness to take art music into unusual venues (schools, senior centres, and even logging camps and prisons!). After 45 years before the public, he remains - as his mentor Andres Segovia once wrote - "at the top line of our artistic world".

Albert Fuller (July 21, 1926 – September 22, 2007) was an American harpsichordist, conductor, teacher, impresario and prominent proponent of early music. He was the first artist to record the complete keyboard works of Jean-Philippe Rameau.
