Bach was known as a harpsichordist, organist, and accomplished violinist, but as far as we know, he did not play the lute. However, he was apparently fascinated by the instrument, its very special sound.
Jakob Lindberg recorded all of the lute suites back in 1992. Three decades later he returns to Bach accompanied by his lute by Sixtus Rauwolf, built around 1590 in Augsburg and rebuilt in 1715, during Bach's lifetime, in the spirit of the Baroque.
But only two of the works recorded this time are original; for the others Lindberg took the liberty of adapting music for other instruments for the lute - just as Bach often did, who dealt with musical material in a very sustainable way and reused it.
