This new transcription of the second cello Suite BWV 1008 by Johann Sebastian Bach, is the result of many years of research, in style and interpretation, both as a performer and as a teacher.
For my transcription, I have always kept foremost Bach’s original text from every point of view, while making the edition as suitable as possible for a plucked instrument. I have sought to recall the emotional language and timbre of the Baroque lute, the Prince of Instruments in Bach’s time.
In the file, you'll find a version with my fingerings, a version with the original Bach's slurs without fingerings and a copy of the original Bachian manuscript.
You can listen the whole suite in my interpretation at this link: https://www.paolopegoraro.com/suite-1008
I hope you'll have a lot of joy playing my version of this magnificent masterwork!
