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

This Bärenreiter edition is edited by August Wenzinger, and includes a foreword in German and English by the editor, as well as an appendix of critical notes in German only.

Note: for the expanded Urtext version also published by Bärenreiter, see item 3000 162.

What does Urtext mean? What makes this edition different than the others?

SHAR Answer:

Urtext basically means that this music is the earliest version of this piece of music, to which later versions can be compared. It serves as a baseline; it gives musicians and scholars an idea for the composer’s original intent. The reason that one would purchase an Urtext edition of music would be so that he or she has a musical text which solely reflects the composer’s intentions; creative interpretation can then be built upon those intentions. While it’s useful to purchase an Urtext edition so that one may get a feel for a composer’s intentions, it’s no guarantee of the composer’s exact writings. When a piece of music is edited or altered, it’s common for editors to add or subtract to the music as well as to edit performance methods. In many cases, it can be useful to purchase a thoroughly edited and altered version of a piece of music, because perhaps it will contain fingerings, bowings or musical performance ideas that will be useful to the performer or student who’s using it. Editions that are edited or arranged may also contain a different cadenza for a concerto. When deciding which edition to buy, it really does come down to personal preference. It’s also worth noting that there’s more than one publisher of the Urtext version of music. Some well-known publishers of Urtext versions include Henle, Bärenreiter and Breitkopf, among others. This comes from the G. Henle Verlag Publisher’s website: “There is no such thing as the one valid Urtext version of a musical composition, because the Urtext edition is not the same as a composer's manuscript. (Unfortunately even today many musicians believe this to be the case, for the word "Urtext" [original text] probably also supports this idea.) In most cases the Urtext editor has to choose between different readings in the primary sources: What is "correct", what is "wrong"? Often there is no clear answer. At all events, a good Urtext edition justifies the decision made (and printed).”
