Andrew Dahlke - J. S. Bach 6 Solo Cello Suites for Saxophone Volume 1

Andrew Dahlke - J. S. Bach 6 Solo Cello Suites for Saxophone - Volume 1

This first of it's kind recording features Andrew playing suites No. 6 (soprano saxophone), No. 2 (low A alto saxophone), and No. 3 (baritone saxophone). Andrew Dahlke’s recording of J. S. Bach’s famous six solo cello suites on saxophones is one of a very few in the world that includes all six suites, and the only one to his knowledge that records them on different saxophones (soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophone).

Andrew spent a number of years studying the suites and performing them prior to recording.  Andrew’s initial model for the suites was the recording by the Russian cellist, Mstislav Rostropovich. Andrew began by transcribing the recorded performances of Rostropovich in detail as a basis for his own interpretation.

The chance “discovery” of the suites by Pablo Casals, and the numerous and varied performances of the suites over time has elevated these magnificent works to an almost “cult-like” status and following.  The suites now stand as a pillar for a performer’s endurance and unique artistry.
