Quote from: Guido on April 19, 2007, 08:32:40 AMI have actually been thinking a lot about solo cello music, and I thought it would be really interesting to commission works that. like the Bach Suites, contain no articulation marks or dynamic markings, and no precise tempo indications, and seeing how composers deal with the challenge. I think to much of modern solo stuff relies on 'effects' and solo string scores are usually amongst the worst for copious amounts of detail. If Bach could get the astonishing range of subtleties that he does, using only the tonal system, then think what would be possible now. There is of course the 5th Sarabande, which astonishes me every time I hear it - those wide intervals and almost atonal harmony - Its just three lines long, and contains every semitone! I think that it approaches the level of achievement of the Chaconne for solo violin (though that's just my personal feeling and I'm sure blasphemous in Bachian circles).
