Violoncello piccolo? Viola pomposa? Today on Musings with Inbal I’ll share the Sarabande from the sixth suite. Though it was written for a 5-string instrument, my lesson is adapted for a 4-string cello with particular attention to the tricky fingerings.
Below is a short reading list and helpful links for studying the Bach cello suites. Please let me know if you have any comments and/or questions, I would love to hear from you. Thank you for watching!!

Allen Winold’s book: Bach’s Cello Suites: Analyses and Explorations
“The Fencing Master” and the sequel, “Bach and the Happy Few,” are both must reads if I may say so, written by THE baroque cellist of our time, Anner Bylsma.
Another must-have is Barenreiter’s urtext edition, which contains facsimiles of the manuscript copies in the hand of Anna Magdalena Bach, Johann Peter Kellner, as well as the Westphal library manuscript (anonymous copiers), first editions, and more.
