From Tragedy to Transcendence: The Six Suites for ‘Cello Solo by J. Sebastian Bach for Acoustic Guitar

From Tragedy to Transcendence:

The Six Suites for ‘Cello Solo

by J. Sebastian Bach for Acoustic Guitar


Steven Hancoff has transcribed and recorded the thirty-six masterpieces that comprise J. S. Bach's Cello Suites on acoustic guitar and made the scores available for free.

 

Additionally he has created a video series and written a four-volume, highly interactive e-book: Bach, Casals and The Six Suites for ‘Cello Solo -- biographies of Bach and of Pablo Casals, the man who rescued the Suites from oblivion. This work is anecdotal rather than technical, describing the lives of these great men in the context of their times as Hancoff has come to fathom them—as fascinating, illuminating, and inspiring artists, and as human beings challenged, like all of us, by the demands life.
