  • About This Album

    The Assad brothers' third Nonesuch recording features music of the Baroque period, transcribed by Sérgio Assad. While best-known for their performances of Latin American works, the Assads’ US tours have won them acclaim for their idiomatic performances of Scarlatti and Rameau, which are featured on this recording, along with the Prelude and Fugue No. 3 in C-sharp Major by Bach and two pieces by Couperin.

The Brazilian guitar duo perform Baroque period works, transcribed by Sérgio Assad. The Washington Post declares, “Their shared musical vision is almost as remarkable as their technical skill and coordination. They adapt their instruments to 18th-century harpsichord styles with ease.”
