Gavotte I & II from Suite No. 5, BWV 1011

from: J.S. Bach - Chamber Music - Suites for Cello Solo

Originally in c minor, transposed here to d. Two versions, one based primarily on Bach's arrangement for lute, and the other based only on the original cello suite. In the latter, the keyboard part has a newly composed bass line. Slurs taken from the earliest cello suite source are added, but due to the lack of clarity in that most important manuscript, they should not be taken overly seriously. Note that we have a version for recorder alone (in the "Pieces for Solo Recorder, No Keyboard Part Anticipated," section), featuring grace notes to simulate multiple stops, that is based solely on the cello suite.

Keyboard parts include separate recorder parts at no additional cost.
