Bach Cello Suites on Trumpet 1-3. 1997. Johann Sebastian Bach.
The six Cello Suites, BWV 1007-1012, are suites for unaccompanied cello by Johann Sebastian Bach. They are some of the most frequently performed and recognizable solo compositions ever written for cello. Bach most likely composed them during the period 1717–23, when he served as Kapellmeister in Köthen. The title given on the cover of the Anna Magdalena Bach manuscript was Suites à Violoncello Solo senza Basso (Suites for cello solo without bass).

It has been a great pleasure working on these Suites for Solo Cello over the past four years. After much consideration I have come to the conclusion that the first three suites are the most suitable for performance (as complete suites) on the trumpet. To that end I have made some changes that purists might object to: 1) Because of the trumpets limited range and because of the extreme change in tone quality in each of its registers, I have had to transpose these suites from their original keys.
Bach: Cello Suites by David Watkin, . Watkin plays the first five suites on a cello by Francesco Ruggieri a luthier contemporary of Bach s whose instruments are famed for their warmth of tone and the sixth on a rare five-string cello by the Amati brothers of the same period. But the extraordinarily resonant sound he makes is probably less to do with the instruments than with the playing itself, which is warm, expansive, generous and friendly.
