BWV 1007: Cello Suite No. 1 (Classical Guitar)

Cello Suite, Prélude No. 1 in D - BWV 1007. Composed J.S. Bach (1685-1750), transcribed by Emilio Pujol (1886-1980), and performed by John Feeley.

This piece is a prélude originally written for unaccompanied cello in the mid-1700s as part of 6 more cello suites by Bach which are all based on Baroque era dances (except for the preludes). These cello suites are considered some of the most important classical works in history and have been transcribed for various instruments. It's important to know that the original scores had no expressive markings so it is up to the performer to add his or her own expression to each piece -- which I think makes playing it much more fun! Enjoy!
