"To encounter a single guitarist capable of shaping these lilting phrases with such sensitivity to musical atmosphere is rare enough, to discover two who move and think as one with such effortless technical precision and expertise is nothing short of miraculous."

And in a live performance, Eurico plays the Fugue from Violin Sonata no. 1 in G Minor BWV 1001 by J. S. Bach. The recording level is very low on this one, so you'll need to turn up the volume, but the recording quality is by far the best of the three...
