Bach's Cello Suites, Volumes 1 and 2

Analyses and Explorations

J. S. Bach's Suites for Unaccompanied Cello are among the most cherished and frequently played works in the entire literature of music, and yet they have never been the subject of a full-length music analytical study. The musical examples herein include every note of all movements (so one needs no separate copy of the music while reading the book), and undertakes both basic analyses—harmonic reduction, functional harmonic analysis, step progression analysis, form analysis, and syntagmatic and paradigmatic melodic analysis—and specialized analyses for some of the individual movements. Allen Winold presents a comprehensive study intended not only for cellists, but also for other performers, music theorists, music educators, and informed general readers.

About the Author

Allen Winold, Professor of Music Emeritus at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, has written numerous books on music theory and history. He has been an active composer, arranger, violinist, and conductor, and has given master classes and seminars throughout the world.

Reviews

". . . these volumes are a fascinating, comprehensive, and incredibly detailed look into the solo cello works of Bach. Recommended for those who like theory and in-depth, analytical discussions of Bach's music.April 1, 2009"—G. P., Strings Magazine

"Dr. Winold's book is unlike any other I have read and is..a uniquely effective blending of the analytic, historical, and performance realms..it will prove to be an invaluable resource for teachers and students alike, and should be of interest to any serious music lover."—Robert Dodson, Provost, New England Conservatory
