  • April 11, 2008 Bach - the definitive edition of the cello suites

    This is the finest edition available for the Bach solo cello suites. This includes facsimile copies of all five early sources, an unedited performing edition, that shows the differences between each source, and a very well done English language critical commentary, including such topics as: source background, the cello in...

    Bach's time, articulation, embellishment, vibrato, dynamics, etc... A truly indispensable tool for serious study of the cello suites.

    This is a must have for all serious students of the Bach Suites. It comes with 5 of the earliest available manuscripts/editions of the suites. Many of the published editions disagree on various details of the suites (even notes!). You can consult the originals for yourself and make your...

    own decisions. It also comes with a performance edition without bowings or dynamics so you/your teacher can personalize them without having to write over the editor's markings.
