J.S. Bach, Exordium to Cello Suites BWV 1007-1012
With this lavishly illustrated publication, cellist and performing artist Derck Littel introduces a new approach to the well known Cello Suites by J.S. Bach. The conceptual deeper layers as known from Bach’s Cantatas and Oratoriums not only apply to his vocal music, but to his instrumental works as well. With an inquisitive mind, the Cello Suites can be compared with Bach’s vocal work and with various Baroque period Vanitas paintings.
Included are several music examples and compositions for ornamentation, interpretation and scordatura practice.
