Eve Beneke: Life On Bach

J.S. Bach – Cello Suite No. 6 Prélude – Eva Beneke (guitar)

This is quite the production here with this Eve Beneke video.

One thing is for sure, Eve is a seriously talented guitarist-
Accuracy and soul seems to be no problem for her on this Bach Cello Suite No.6 Prelude. The video obviously was recorded separate from the actual audio performance but, it’s fun watching what Eve’s life is all about.. that is.. what she’s doing when she’s not playing the guitar which just can’t be so often.
Make sure you listen through the entire video- there’s some lines in there that are just so amazing… Eve pulls them off without breaking a sweat, or in this case messing up her makeup. Just beautiful.
