LISTEN AND SHARE: Fire & Grace – An Introduction

William Coulter on Fire & Grace:

“One of our most intriguing arrangements is a piece we call the Liquid Gold Suite. The foundation of the Liquid Gold Suite is the Partita in D minor for solo violin by Bach. We play the four movements as a violin and guitar duo – and we insert an Irish tune in between each movement – and then a wonderful Irish reel following the gigue to finish it off. We love the idea of blending Baroque dance music with Irish dance music – highlighting similarities and differences.”
