NEW VISION OF THE CELLO SUITES

WHAT IS NEW ? 


Even if she used all four sources, Marianne's edition follows mainly source A (the manuscript copy by A-M Bach, see below). 

When she started her research, Marianne's aim was not only to understand the slurs of the manuscripts but to understand the mechanic of the sound of the instrument. 

When she noticed that the baroque cello gained a lot of resonance by reversing the bowing technique, Marianne started looking at the score as if it was composed to use similar bow strokes to the viola da gamba.  It also has had impact on phrasing and articulation.


The edition should be available in the coming months. Looking for a publisher.
