This is the first of Bach's six solo Cello Suites composed between 1717 and 1723 while he was Kapellmeister at Cöthen. There is no surviving autograph score and the nineteen editions prepared over the last 190 years have had to rely on "....a somewhat careless copy by Anna Magdalena Bach.", his second wife, which gives little or nothing of his intentions for articulation or bowing. This may not matter to a saxophonist who has to think instead about breathing.
Jean-Marie Londeix studied saxophone with Marcel Mule at the Paris Conservatoire and later combined a worldwide career as a pioneering saxophone soloist with teaching and composing educational works. His transcription of this Bach suite contains a wealth of breath marks, phrasing and articulation which help the player to bring out all the dance which Bach put into the six movements which follow the Prelude.
