acoustic guitar
July/August 1994

Nobody plays the guitar like Philip Hii; he's a Heifetz of the classical guitar. This recording features his transcriptions of difficult and breathtakingly beautiful Bach works, including the stalwart Prelude, Fugue, and Allegro, and Toccata and Fugue, BWV 565, which is rarely heard on guitar. Hii's Allegro is the best I've ever heard, and the Toccata and Fugue is downright scary. This is must listening for classical guitar buffs who want to blow a few fuses.
