In his first video, Prof. Joseph Mendoes tackles the famous Prelude from Suite No.1 by Johann Sebastian Bach for cello solo. His approach is not only unique, but proven to be really effective! Enjoy this first video dedicated to the great cello (or violoncello, which ever you prefer)
This edition is revised by Fabrizio Ferrari, about whom I know nothing. The first page, at least, does not indicate how or where, it was revised. It's safe to say Bach's work does not need revising. There are many versions of this music on the market, and some are closer to the original than this edition. If you are serious about learning these pieces, get an urtext (i.e, unedited) version.
