Bach Cello

The debate still rages about the origins and intention behind these suites. Were they written for the cellist of the court (Christian Ferdinand Abel and Christian Bernhard Linke) where Bach was employed at the time? Were they written for a strange instrument called a violoncello de spalla?

Since Pablo Casals brought these works to public attention and presented them in their entire form, these six suites have formed the backbone and engine room of musical understanding for every modern cellist. The suites are the heartbeat of the cello repertoire and are true windows into Bach's world.

Zoe Knighton has been performing the solo cello Bach suites since 2008 and has now has this complete recording on a two CD set.
