Jonathan Bockelmann is back with the second installment of his ongoing series „Sakamoto on Guitar“, a tribute to the deceased Japanase composer. „Suite for Krug in 2008“ is a piece commissioned by the champagne brand “Krug”. Each of the three “Movements” is intended to be paired with one of their wines. Jonathan’s stripped-down arrangement for guitar takes the piano and all the lush and bubbly synths of the original and decants them into a fine blend of flageolets and arpeggios, masterfully combining the different layers of the composition on his instrument.
