Transcribed for guitar by Alfredo S├ínchez Introduced by Leo Brouwer. A musical transcription needs to be justified by one or more valid reasons to establish a favorable balance between what the transcribed work stands to gain and what it stands to lose from the inevitable modifications which will change the course of its life as a result of the transcription. The present work achieves double merit by contributing to the enrichment of the guitar's repertoire with material whose value is beyond discussion; on the other hand, the real contribution of this work is to make it possible for the present day guitarist to have in his hands a method that focuses on the practice of polyphony. It is not only a delight listening to the performance of a work so coveted by guitarists, but one is also amazed at the extensive polyphonic horizon to be covered upon adapting for our instrument a work of such contrapuntal magnitude as The Well-Tempered Clavier by Johann Sebastian Bach. Alfredo S├ínchez began playing the guitar at the age of 12, teaching himself to play BachÔ s music. In later years he studied with Manuel L├│pez Ramos, Andr├ęs Segovia (1981), Iv├ín Rijos, Robert Guthrie and Leo Brouwer. He also took master-classes with Manuel Barrueco and David Russell. Between the years 1982 and 1992, Alfredo S├ínchez won first and second prizes in several important competitions in Mexico and in Puerto Rico. He toured in the Soviet Union in 1983, 1984 and 1987. He has often appeared in Mexico in most of the important concert halls and has recorded several programs for national radio and television. He is active as a soloist, playing with chamber music ensembles and with orchestra. In 1994 he was asked to establish the guitar department at the prestigious University of the Americas, Puebla, Mexico where he taught for a couple of years. In 1997 he was appointed as a professor in the Faculty of Music at the University of Veracruz, Mexico; several of his students have received national and international recognition.
