From the Preface: The purpose of these transcriptions in the first position is to enable the young cello pupil to play and enjoy Bach after one year or less of instruction. Bach's Suites for Solo Cello and Sonatas for Cello and Piano are so difficult technically that years of practice are required before a student can attempt to play them. It is hoped that these pieces will prove to be a useful addition to the limited repertoire of the beginning cellist.
Bach, Johann Sebastian
