REVIEW VIDEOS

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.

Nice quality print!

Well bound and nice quality print. I’d like to see better annotations for recommended bowings and fingerings. This editor leaves a lot open to interpretation, which would be perfect for an advanced player.

Fantastic edition

This is a BEAUTIFUL edition of the cello suites, and will help any amateur feel the appropriate awe when being handed her/his first copy of this music. And I'm no Bach scholar, but the bowings and notes are much more accurate to accepted performance practices than the majority of other editions I've seen.
