Three Sonatas for viola da gamba or cello and keyboard (BWV 1027-1029) by Johann Sebastian Bach

Includes play-along accompaniment CD. Urtext edition by Laurence Dreyfus. Published by C.F. Peters

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 was an unceasing innovator, especially after he became director of Leipzig's secular music ensemble Collegium Musicum and was able to focus his efforts on instrumental music. Among the fruits of these efforts were his three sonatas for viola da gamba and basso continuo, BWV 1027-1029. Both the G Major (BWV 1027) and D Major (BWV 1028) are charming 'church sonatas' of previously composed material. By contrast, the G minor sonata (BWV 1029) is a far more intricate and substantial work, closer in form to the Italian concerto. This Peters urtext edition contains parts for cello, viola da gamba, and keyboard, as well as a play-along CD with recorded accompaniments. Advanced level, Grade 5.
