Bach Suites for solo cello No.1 in G; No.3 in C, No.5 in C minor; No.6 in D

It is not known why or for whom Bach composed his suites for solo cello, but does it matter? What is more important is that they are masterful crystallisations of his unique and universal art, a distillation of melody and harmony into a single line of pure music that encompasses a world of profound expression. As such they are an ultimate test that reveals not just a cellist’s technique, but their musical eloquence and honesty too.
