Bach I

In Bach I, I have embarked on a journey of recording the cello repertoire, searching diligently for the most ideal interpretation of each piece. The Bach Suites are the greatest cello music we have, and also represent the origin of great solo cello music. There was no better place to start than the First Suite in G Major. The album is entirely self-produced.

Bach II

In the second installment of my Bach Cello Suites recordings, we explore the D Minor Suite, BWV 1008. This recording is one very different than the first in G Major, entering a much darker emotional landscape. From the opening Prelude, the solitude of the singular cello line is at its most poignant: a voice, alone in the world, finds its peace. Like the first one, it is entirely self-produced.

Bach III

The Third Suite in C Major embodies the purity of its key, with no sharps or flats. In the opening measures of the Prelude, the low open C of the cello provides a foundation for a story of virtue.

Bach IV

The Fourth Suite in E-flat Major is perhaps the least known to general audiences, but the most beloved to serious fanatics. The increasing complexity of each Suite begins to be made clear here, with the most obscure key of all of them. Rather than centering around the open G, D, and C strings of the previous Suites, JSB instead selects a rich key that requires much more from the cellist's technique. When mastered, it produces a unique timbre: one that gives us a deep feeling of the concrete earth below us, and the infinite sky above. 

1. Cello Suite No. 4 in E-flat major, BWV 1010 - Prelude 

2. Cello Suite No. 4 in E-flat major, BWV 1010 - Allemande

3. Cello Suite No. 4 in E-flat major, BWV 1010 - Courante

4. Cello Suite No. 4 in E-flat major, BWV 1010 - Sarabande

5. Cello Suite No. 4 in E-flat major, BWV 1010 - Bourrée I & II
