Bach cello No. 6 Prelude

Post by soltirefa » Sun Mar 05, 2017 10:54 pm

I really love this playing and the transcription. It has some sections transposed an octave and a few changed notes. At first I thought it might be Stanley Yates' version, because I know he has parts up an octave, but I don't think so. Maybe it's the artist's own transcription. Whatever the case, it really is beautiful.

Do you think you could recommend a transcription that's close? Beata Bedkowska-Huang's is gorgeous--so very moving.

Unfortunately, I've haven't been able to find an album of his with the Bach Cello Suite No. 6.

I dont think he has an album with this. He did tell me it was his own transcription.

cheers!

Thanks for that information, Dirck. It's very disappointing that it's not on one of his albums. I think his version, with the added counterpoint in the bass, is magnificent. And I have a weakness for pieces with the 6th string lowered to D, I reckon. :)

Beautiful rendition(s). Both of them mentioned in this thread. And it led me to listen to another version by Yamashita, which always makes my day.

Hadn't seen Xavier Coll before so thank you for introducing me to two new guitarists. This forum is always wonderful for that.

Cheers.
