Reviews of this publication:

 


* Johann Sebastian Bach

This new edition, in contrast to the array of Bach Cello Suite
publications available today,
has made use of all the five sources which have come down to us. The
basis for this
edition is the most reliable of the sources, the manuscript copy in
the hand of
Anna Magdalena Bach. All variant readings from the four other
sources are clearly laid out
for performance. Cellists now have the possibility of rendering
performances based on just
one of the five sources as well as the option of combining the
sources in a mixed version.

„… a very valuable edition that should be in the library of every
thinking cellist.“

(Strings February/March 2004)

“...a very innovative publication, setting a new standard for
performance studies
for the next century.”

(On-line Book Review by Yo Tomita – 21. June 2001)

“Bärenreiter has published a treasure here...”

(American String Teacher May 2001)

“This is a publication which any cellist, interested in detailed
study of the suites, should have.
It is excellent value.”

“It is a very innovative publication, setting a new standard for
performance studies
for the next century.”

(Bach-Bibliography 5. October 2000)

“This is a magnificent assembly of the essential documents for any
serious student of these
basic works for any cellist, whether baroque or modern.”

(Early Music Review 63, September 2000)
