J. S. Bach – Cello Suite no. 1 in G Major

Bach’s six cello suites are perhaps the most famous and recognisable solo compositions ever written for cello. In this adaptation for double bass by Lorraine Campet, the original pitch is kept, meaning that most of this version is in thumb position. Due to its key, however, it lies nicely on the instrument, with plenty of open strings and harmonics.
