Bach's Cello Suites

Lluís Claret, cello

Bach composed his Cello Suites between 1717 and 1723, when he was associated with the court of Cöthen. Probably conceived for Christian Ferdinand Abel or Christian Bernhard Linike, these works gave a new dimension to the cello as soloist. Prior to this, the cello had served as accompaniment and harmonic support in instrumental ensembles.
