Three Gamba Sonatas BWV1027-1029-CEL(BSN)/HARPSICHORD
Composer: Bach, J.S.
for viola da gamba or cello (or bassoon) and harpsichord
by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)- German Baroque composer
Edited by Ernst-Gunter Heinemann. Fingerings for the keyboard part by Klaus Schilde. Bowing by Rainer Zipperling and Claus Kanngiesser. Originally for viola da gamba, this title comes with solo parts for viola da gamba or cello. Minor adjustments will need to be made by a bassoonist wishing to perform this work.
Both the keyboard and solo parts are amply laid out and precisely but sparsely marked. Any deviance from original sources is carefully indicated and explained in extensive notes at the end of the continuo volume. Professor Siegfried Petrenz has stylishly realized the continuo. Thanks to its dedicated team of scholars, Henle has produced a definitive performance edition and a handsome volume to the low register string literature.
