Composer Information

Johann Sebastian Bach (31 March [O.S. 21 March] 1685 – 28 July 1750) was a German composer and musician of theBaroque period. He enriched established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivicorganisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach's compositions include the Brandenburg concertos, the Mass in B minor, The Well-Tempered Clavier, two Passions, keyboard works, and more than 300 cantatas, of which nearly 100 cantatas have been lost to posterity. His music is revered for its intellectual depth, technical command, and artistic beauty.

Work Information

The six suites for unaccompanied cello by Bach are formed by six movements each. In addition to the standard combination mode, "Allemande-Courante-Sarabande-Minuet-Gigue", a Prelude is added in the front for each. These preludes are the most essential movement of each suite, which are varied and contains the most profound idea of Bach's music.
