About This Item

The Bach Cello Suites are widely regarded as among the best music written for a solo instrument, and as a result they have been transcribed for a very wide variety of other instruments.  Rediscovered and popularized by Pablo Casals a century ago, these suites vary greatly in difficulty and style.  As a result, developing cellists tend to spend a great deal of time with these suites over the course of their education.

"To me, the Bach Suites are and will be a lifetime of exploration, work, and passion. The range of difficulty and color in the Suites along with pedagogical value and pure enjoyment make them a must for cellists of all ages and levels. Since no autograph exists in Bach's hand there are numerous editions available. The Wenzinger edition published by Barenreiter has become famous for its fairness to authentic interpretation, cleanliness to reading, scholarly suggestions, and generous price bracket. Every cellist should own at least one copy of the Suites for their library (I have four!) and this edition is one of the best to start your journey!"
- Thomas LaForgia, Cello, Shar Apprentice


Composed by Johann Sebastian Bach, arranged and edited by Diran Alexanian for solo cello.  Includes facsimile of the manuscript.  Published by Editions Salabert.

Difficulty: 3-6.

Question By:
Jeng-Liang Tsai
From San Jose, CA

Asked On: 10/15/2016

I am looking for a Bach six suites addition arranged by Diran Alexanian, editions Salabert, that also include the original manuscript of Anna Magdalena Bach. My son's cello teach got such a copy at New York many years ago. This seems to be the right version except it does not seem to include the original manuscript.

SHAR Answer:

I believe this is the version you are looking for! This book is the Salabert Editions, arranged by Diran Alexanian, and includes the original manuscript by Anna Magdalena Bach. We have updated the product photos and included an image of the original manuscript for your reference. Thanks for your question Jeng-Liang!
