Duet part for Bach solo cello suite

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Happy to share parts if anyone is interested.  I'm working on doing the whole suite (no.1, G major) but thought I'd get this out there and try to get some feedback first.

It's fine... it just kind of sounds like a splash of color that obscures some of the more intricate compound melody present in the original with overlap.

Thank you for your feedback, Monarcheon.  I have tried to write counterpoint against the compound lines I hear, but it is a varied approach admittedly.  I weighed that up against picking out and making the compound melodies explicit, and might still try that with a sarabande, but I think will make an inescapably a muddy texture that way, which wouldn't suite the lighter dance movements like the minuets.  The easiest way would be to change the original part to have some of the implied melodies in clear, separate parts, but I think that would be defeating the object somehow.
