Grammy Award-winning classical guitarist Jason Vieaux has released "Bach Volume 2: Works for Violin" on Azica Records.  This is a follow up to his acclaimed 2009 album, "Bach Volume 1: Works for Lute."  Vieaux says, “Indeed, it’s been well over a decade since the 2009 issue of three lute works of Johann Sebastian Bach. The idea Azica and I had back then was that there would eventually be a Volume 2, which would complete the ‘lute’ set by making a ‘violin’ record that included BWV 1006… well, it eventually turned out to be about 13 years, 2 kids, 700 more gigs, and over 8 hours of commercial releases later."

I had the pleasure of catching up with Jason while he was on tour in Calgary.  Enjoy our chat about the music!

Yours in good music,
