  • The most recent state of musicology with regard to the cello suites now reflected in an arrangement for viola
  • In a large format (25.5 cm × 32.5 cm) with practical page turns
  • A fine performing edition

Bach’s Six Suites for Violoncello solo are among the highlights of eighteen-century string solo literature. For centuries, these pieces have also been performed on the viola – a practice that still enjoys unbroken popularity today.

The source situation regarding the cello suites is complex: all autographs are lost and the surviving sources often contradict each other with regard to phrasing, bowing and further variants. In order to reflect the latest state of research, violist and musicologist Chung Park has based his arrangement on the Bärenreiter Urtext publication of the cello suites edited by Douglas Woodfull-Harris and Bettina Schwemer (BA 5217) as well as on the respective volume in the “New Bach Edition – Revised” (NBArev) edited by Andrew Talle (BA 5942-01 / BA 5278). We recommend violists to refer to the facsimile parts of these editions for an overview of the various readings in the sources.
