What level would you say this piece is Celeste? I like it and will likely learn it. I've recently started working on BWV 1003 Andante with Per Olav Kindren's transcription and it is going OK but it may beyond my current proficiency in some parts. I have a knack for picking pieces that look easy but have sections harder than I currently can play!celestemcc wrote:Seconding Cello Suite 1, BWV 1007. Koonce's is good, as is the one from the Iceland Guitar School, both of which are relatively spare. (Just Google the term). The latter is free. I pick and choose from both editions because they're voiced slightly differently, the former being a bit more true to the Cello version, but both are acceptable and relatively easy. The gigue's tough no matter which edition, though, at tempo!
The Lute suites are a lot more difficult, very broadly speaking.
Don't know as I can say what level it is: not beginner, perhaps intermediate to advanced intermediate? The Prelude isn't hard, certainly easier than most of Bach's Lute Suites by far. Depends on the edition and your preferences, honestly: I'd look over several to see what you like. Some are more heavily fingered, some less; some more cello-like, some more guitar-like in the use of campanella and added bass notes. The ones I use, Iceland and Koontz, are relatively spare and I find them easy, particularly the Prelude. My teacher insists that it's an accomplishment in itself to learn an entire suite, even an "easy" one (I'd agree!).What level would you say this piece is Celeste?
