Cello Suites: Volume 1
Bach, JS

Carla Rees presents this arrangement of the Bach Cello Suites for solo alto flute.

Arrangements of one kind or another have been at the heart of alto flute repertoire since Boehm's own arrangements of well-known works at the time of the instrument's development in the mid 1850s. For an instrument that lacks its own repertoire before the mid nineteenth century, adapting earlier works provides both useful practice material and a broader range of musical material.

This adaptation of the Cello Suites, by Carla Rees, is formed from studying various printed sources, including facsimiles of the four versions of the composer s manuscript, with slight modifications made to suit a single line instrument and the idiosyncrasies of the alto flute. Articulations are based on those found in the source material, but may be altered to suit the interpretation and requirements of the individual player, as is commonly the case with performances by different cellists. Double stopping has been represented by grace notes, which may be allowed more time or omitted altogether depending on the skill and tastes of the performer. Where two notes appear simultaneously in the score, this is to indicate a possible ossia for instruments with a B (F sharp) footjoint, and players of the standard alto flute should always follow the upper notes.

For advanced players.
