J.S. Bach's Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue on Classical Guitar - Music, Tab and Sheet Music
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was one of the greatest composers of
all time. His death in 1750 is generally considered to be the end of
the Baroque era in music history. One of his most famous works is the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, which was originally written for Harpsichord. My favorite recording of this piece is by Wanda Landowska.
