The New CD from Virginia Luque Now Available at The Guitar Salon

Goldberg Variations for Guitar

Listener’s reviews from music lovers that purchased the cd:

“The richness of vigor and color of Bach's Goldberg Variations are never more dramatically evident than when listening to Virginia Luque play them on her Hauser. Every variation is a unique journey, something new and exciting to be discovered in every measure! When listening to the colors she brings out in the heavenly Aria, or the mournful adagio of V25, or the mind boggling toccata of V28, rediscovering the Goldberg on her guitar is a timeless and precious gift.”
- K.K

“I found this recording to be a joyful and absorbing re-interpretation of the Variations.   Since I first loaded the cd I have found it difficult to stop playing it. Through her deep artistry and astonishing technique Virginia has adapted these pieces for guitar in an entirely musical and natural way.  Anyone who is familiar with the famous keyboard interpretations will find new ways to enjoy this great music.  Anyone who studies or is familiar with modern classical guitar will be amazed.” - P. C

“Virginia Luque's new arrangement of Bach's Goldberg Variations is a modern marvel. The brilliance of the arrangement is matched only by the flawless performance. Were it not so technically challenging I believe it would become standard repertoire for all guitarists.” - C.A

“While listening to Virginia Luque’s Goldberg Variations, a thought crossed my mind: "She breathes through her instrument." The range of emotions she evokes is breathtaking, from joy and excitement to contemplation and sadness. I could hear her love and understanding of Bach across the thousands of guitar strokes, punctuated and nuanced to express complex lines and driving motion.  Once I started listening, I could not stop. I felt like I was being taken to a different place, a place I love being in. Thank you Ms. Luque!” - M.G
