We’ve teamed up with music publisher Bärenreiter to create beautiful videos of live performances with scrolling scores.
Bach’s Cello Suites are some of the greatest works ever written for the instrument – and a real touchstone for any professional cellist.
Bärenreiter, founded in 1923, is one of the world’s most well-known classical music publisher.
We’ve teamed up with the publishing house to bring you videos that combine live music-making with the musical score – so you can follow along while enjoying the performance.
Christian-Pierre La Marca is one of today’s top cellist and we went behind the scenes at Sony to record a live session with him.
He performed the breath-takingly beautiful Prélude from Bach’s First Cello Suite for us. The Bärenreiter edition on screen is BA320 – and you can buy the score here.
