Bach Cello Suites for Piano
Play Bach's famous cello suites in beautiful new arrangements for piano by Eleonor Bindman.
J.S. Bach’s genius is universally revered by music lovers, and a significant part of his output was in transcriptions of his own work, a tradition kept alive in Eleonor Bindman’s piano versions of the Six Suites for Solo Cello.
Bindman has avoided embellishing these iconic pieces, preserving the intriguing ambiguities in Bach’s implied harmonies and savouring their expressive qualities through the baritone register of a marvellous Bösendorfer piano.
These admirably accurate transcriptions reveal the mysterious mathematical grace and flexibility of structure that makes Bach’s art so organic and eternal.
Watch Eleonor Bindman performing the Prelude of the Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007.
