Suites 1-3 BWV 1007-1009 (Van Cleve)-SOLO OB

Composer: Bach, JS

Publisher: T D Ellis

Edition: 48206


Suites 1-3 BWV 1007, 1008, 1009
for solo oboe
by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)- German Baroque composer


Originally for solo cello, these works have been edited by Libby Van Cleve. From Van Cleve:

When I first arranged one of Bach's cello suites for the oboe, more than twenty years ago, it felt like a gutsy, almost sacrilegious act. Now, performers freely borrow repertoire written for other instruments, and the cello suites can be heard on instruments as disparate as the tuba, saxophone, and banjo. Playing them on the oboe doesn't seem so radical. Although some passages are not idiomatic for the instrument, oboists are extremely fortunate to have access to these profound compositions.
