Six Suites for Solo Cello, BWV 1007-12 by Johann Sebastian Bach

Edited by Hugo Becker. Published by International

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was a German composer of the Baroque period and widely considered one of the greatest composers in the Western canon. He carefully studied the work of his forebears and contemporaries, incorporating intricate counterpoint and harmonic innovations into a sophisticated style that represents the zenith of the Baroque tradition. Though he wrote predominantly religious music-including several passions and over 200 cantatas-he is most celebrated today for his profoundly moving instrumental music, including concertos, suites, and sonatas, including many for strings-such as his Cello Suites and Sonatas and Partitas for violin.

Bach's six suites for unaccompanied cello (BWV 1007-1012) form the bedrock of the cello repertory and are indispensable to a classical cellist's development, ranging from the intermediate level Suite No. 1 to the master level Suite No. 6. These six suites are widely considered Bach's greatest masterpieces. This International edition contains both scordatura and natural tuning notation for Suite No. 5, presented on two staves. Ranges from Grades 3-6.
