  • February 22, 2008 Beautiful songs, but better versions available

    Don't get me wrong, Bach is a musical genius as we all know and playing the suites on my viola was definitely fun. But I've seen better versions of his work, I wish I had bought a different book.

  • January 15, 2007 not lifschey

    the bach suites are some of the most famous pieces ever written, and for good reason! i would suggest NOT buying this version. the bowings and fingerings are awful and it is not close to the original. if you are searching for the original, buy the peters edition. if you...

    are searching for smooth/easier bowings, buy the ricordi. best of luck!

  • August 29, 2005 really great

    These six suites are extremely helpful in that they are quick pased music. While learning to move your fingers quickly, the music is really beautiful, and many of the songs are familiar...well duh it's BACH! Get it!! At first i thought it was too hard, but once you...

    practice it's awesome!!

  • April 08, 2001 Six Suites

    The Suites themselves definently deserve a 5, but the Lifchey edition of the music is not something I suggest. After I compared the music to the PRIMROSE edition, Primrose was proven far better. It has easier bowings and positions, and gives the Suites a better sound. (Ignore my first review...

    ;)

    I thought the Suite's were very interesting as a violist. Each one had so much emotion. Others had so much energy.
