6 Suites for Violoncello Solo BWV 1007-1012

Cello Solo. Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Edited by Egon Voss. Violoncello. Henle Music Folios. Pages: XII and 64, 2 Vc Parts = V and 56 each. Softcover. G. Henle #HN666. Published by G. Henle (HL.51480666).

Item Number: HL.51480666

The most important source for Bach's Cello Suites is a copy made by his wife Anna Magdalena because the autograph is no longer extant. As further copies show, the actual musical text is scarcely problematic. However, the slurs, which are particularly important for string instruments, are very inexact and compel the editor to make difficult decisions. Our practical edition, HN 666, is in two parts. It not only offers the Urtext edition – with preface and critical commentary – but also a part for playing. The new study edition contains the Urtext part, but in addition offers a reproduction of Anna Magdalena's copy. This means that both cellists and music lovers alike are able to form their own opinion about the much discussed problems.

    Difficulty Level:
  • November 25, 2013 Great for study and performance

    If you are a more advanced cellist looking for an edition that you can use to study and formulate your own decisions on bowing, fingerings and style, this is the one for you. It is free from the over editing you get in many other editions. The 'clean' score gives...

    you a nice blank slate to study and discover. However, if you are more intermediate, you might find this one rather sparse and like the fingering and bowing suggestions of other editions. It comes with two copies, a lightly edited version and the urtext. The edited version has some good suggestions on fingerings for many of the most difficult passages. The type face is very clear and easy to read. It has become the exclusive version that I use for practicing and performing the Bach Cello Suites.

    Difficulty Level:
  • April 28, 2011 Good edition but no Magdalena facsimile included!

    The edition is clearly type-set and is clear to read. However the description is wrong. There is no " reproduction of Anna Magdalena's copy" in this edition that was supplied to me.

    Difficulty Level:
  • April 24, 2009 Every cellist plays some of these at some point

    Worth getting the set of Urtext parts for these suites so that you can compare variations in the source materials. These are easy to read with sufficient space for notes and bowings.
