Suite No. 1 in G Major for Solo Cello, BWV 1007 by Johann Sebastian Bach

Urtext edition by Ulrich Leisinger. Published by Wiener Urtext

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. Suite No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007 is particularly beloved, with the prelude one of the most recognizable pieces of classical music in history. It is an ideal masterwork for the intermediate cellist, presented here in a high quality Wiener Urtext edition. Grade 3.
