Cello Suite No. 5 in C minor, BWV 1011
The six cello suites on this recording have their parallel in six sonatas for solo violin, also from Bach’s time in Köthen, before he moved to Leipzig. On the title page of the violin sonatas the composer wrote Libro primo (First Book). The original manuscript of the cello suites has vanished, but both wife Anna Magdalena and others left copies. Did the composer perhaps call the cello suites Second Book?

Traditional dance forms are the bones of the suites as they are in other suites by Bach and other Baroque composers. But this is not music for a palace ball. The dance tradition serves as the basis for an unrelenting elaboration and exploration of contours, sounds and rhythms.

In the cello suites, Bach creates the most sublime art from popular dance forms and enables a cello to sound almost like an entire string quartet. The musician often plays on several strings simultaneously. The polyphony is necessarily more modest than, for example, on a keyboard instrument, but the cellist achieves a polyphonic sound with him/herself. In this way, Bach accomplishes the masterstroke of creating works for the cello that are both thematic and with a full-bodied sound.

Bjorg Lewis is one of Norway’s most sought-after and admired cellists. She has been a soloist with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra with Mariss Jansons conducting, as well as performing with orchestras throughout Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Baltics.

Recorded in Bakke Church, ovre Eiker, 17–19 December 2012. Played on Gennaro Gagliano cello of 1748.
