Praeludium, BWV 1008 (SCGS Holiday Concert 2021)
« on: December 17, 2021, 10:26:02 PM »
The six Cello Suites, BWV 1007–1012, are suites for unaccompanied cello by Johann Sebastian Bach. They are some of the most frequently performed and recognizable solo compositions ever written for cello. Bach most likely composed them during the period 1717–23, when he served as Kapellmeister in Köthen. The title given on the cover of the Anna Magdalena Bach manuscript was Suites à Violoncello Solo senza Basso (Suites for cello solo without bass).

Suite No. 2 in D minor includes the following movements:
Prelude
Allemande
Courante
Sarabande
Minuet I / II
Gigue

The Prelude consists of two parts, the first of which has a strong recurring theme that is immediately introduced in the beginning. The second part is a scale-based cadenza movement that leads to the final, powerful chords. I made the transcription for classical guitar.

This recording is prepared and played on SCGS 2021 Online Annual Holiday Fund-Raising Concert at 7:00 PM on Saturday, December 11, 2021.

Why don't you start your own thread dedicated to your performances instead of posting new ones each time you want to make an announcement? Doesn't make any sense.
