Bach Cello Suite practice seshes, part 2

Today, a little video of me working on the Bach Cello Suite No. 1 again. This time, the “Allemande.” An Allemande is a baroque dance made popular by the court of Louis XIV. It’s moderately slow. I think I’ve grown to play this less slow and more moderate for endurance sake. Also, I think these work well for trumpet without repeat (especially for a whole performance of the suite).

  1. Wow! (I thought I was the only one who regularly practiced string parts- some of my favorites are violin 1 on Brandenburgs 1, 2 and 5).

    1. That’s cool, Brian!! Of course, the Bach/Gisondi book is great, IMO. Sometimes I have worked on the Partita #3 opening movement for trumpet (transposed down a bit).
