Bach's Unaccompanied Suites beautifully and meticulously edited for Horn by Ralph Sauer, 48 page textbook. Mr. Sauer's thoughtful version of the Six Suites gives the performer "room to breathe" musically. To quote Mr. Sauer and Pablo Casals,"I refrained from using fanciful descriptive terms such as con brio, or quasi una fantasia because they may suggest a particular style...This transcription is not intended to be a blueprint to be followed exactly, but rather, it is the raw material from which a personal interpretation can be built."To quote Pablo Casals, "Where interpreting Bach's music is concerned, there are no hard and fast rules...The best thing to do is to discard all preconceived ideas and try to approach in our performances whatever the music conveys to us..."

Arranged for 8 horns. This piece was originally for four part chorus, organ and string orchestra. The chorus parts are in the first 4 horn parts and the accompaniment parts are the 5-8 parts. The first 4 parts can be played by themselves as a chorale with a few rests left out.
This is a wonderful piece that requires sensitive playing but is not technically difficult. If you have a large group, twelve to sixteen, the best idea is to use one on a part for the accompaniment and put everyone else on the chorale parts. Keep at least a two to one ratio to get the effect of a chorus with strings. The 5th part is important as it is the first violin part so it needs a good player.
This is the familiar melody section of the slow movement. It is a 4 part arrangement that sounds great with any number of horns- the more the merrier! Suitable for intermediate to advanced players. It is not technically difficult and is not a range problem.
