Format Notes

The six suites for unaccompanied Cello, BMW 1007-1012 are 6 alike pieces. They were written by Bach in the period 1717-1723. The first suite (the prelude) is the most well-known part of all suites.

In the manuscript of Anna Magdalena Bach, in front of the Prelude of the 5th, written you can find "Discordable": The highest cello string, normally tuned to A, has to be tuned a full step down to a G.
