While Anner Bylsma Johann Sebastian Bach 6 Suites For Unaccompanied Cello was some existing repertoire written for solo violin, hardly any composer had the temerity to write solo works for a bass instrument, such as the cello. Until the first decades of the 18th century, the cello was seen as an accompanying instrument, providing harmonic foundation and accompaniment to the Various The Rough Guide To African Disco along with a number of other instruments.
This was an important and functional role, but without any of the implied glory, virtuosity or elegance of a well-written work for recorder or violin. We do not know if Bach was familiar with any of these works. When he decided to compose for solo cello, he chose a different path and turned towards a well-known if by then somewhat old-fashioned genre, the suite. This term refers to a series of dance movements in the same or related keys.
Interestingly, there are no tempo markings for Anner Bylsma Johann Sebastian Bach 6 Suites For Unaccompanied Cello of the movements given by the composer. Therefore, it is up to the performer to choose the suitable pulse for their interpretation. And here is the same movement, played almost twice as fast by the flamboyant German cellist, Jark Prongo K ucci Schiff:.
The final dance is an English Gigue. Although we have no evidence to suggest the actual order in which the suites were composed, all published versions start with the easiest Suite I in G major and move to the hardest.
Somewhat confusingly, this means that the performer will play exactly what is in the written music, but will hear different notes from what he or she sees. The instrument needed for Suite VI in D major is, in fact, a different cello altogether: one with five strings instead of the customary four, again significantly changing the sonority of the instrument.
