About this exposition

The aim of this research is to explore the many differing opinions and available options when playing early music, in particular, the music of J.S Bach. This research focuses on Bach´s cello suite No.1 in G-major. The numerous possibilities in interpretation of Bach´s music were the motivation behind gaining knowledge about historically informed ways of playing. I was also interested in exploring the relationship between dance and music during the baroque period. Therefore, my research specifically examines how I can apply the characters of baroque dance into my performance of Bach cello suite no.1. Although the Bach suites were not intended to accompany dance, features such as tempo, gestures of dance choreography, and characters of the dances have provided me with important insight in my playing. These changes are also due in part to the connections I have made with some notable experts in the field such as Anner Bylsma, Tormod Dalen, Lucia Swarts, as well as studying literature on the topic, and by listening to selected recordings. This research aims to help and develop my own personal style of playing Bach, with a further goal of inspiring and sharing this knowledge with other cellists.
