On this disc, the Katona Twins perform two duets and two solo works by J.S. Bach. The duets were originally composed for the harpsichord and the solo pieces were originally for the lute. Because of the complexity and difficulty of lute works, many support the idea that these works were written for an instrument called the Lautenwerck or lute-harpsichord (a small harpsichord with a similarly shaped body to that of a lute). We know that Bach possessed at least two of these instruments, according to the inventory of instruments made at his death. Critically acclaimed by the Absolute Sound for their ''fabulous guitar technique and highly refined musical instincts,'' Peter and Zoltan Katona approach these works from a fresh and vibrant perspective.
