Bach for Viola, Violin and Cello Repertoire

Taught By: Mallory Carnes

This 6-week course will discuss the historical and modern importance of J.S. Bach’s six unaccompanied violin sonatas and six cello suites. Students will engage with repertoire from both sets of music to understand their similarities and differences. We will explore the contents of the six cello suites and the six violin sonatas/partitas as we examine the styles of music ranging from a fugue to a sarabande and their important stylistic nuances. Finally, we will spend time learning to perform excerpts from these works; this will be approached from a theoretical standpoint of examining the notes Bach wrote and an artistic perspective as we grapple with these life-long critical pieces and how to express ourselves within their structures. By the end of the course, students will be empowered to craft their analyses and interpretations while also understanding these revered works’ historical and performative contexts.

Classes are offered at 7–8:15 PM EST on Wednesdays from 11/3-12/8.

Essential Topics (in order of appearance in the course):

  1. Who was J.S. Bach, and why is his music so well-loved today?
  2. What are the 6 Unaccompanied Cello Suites? What are the 6 Solo Violin Sonatas/Partitas?
  3. What is the importance of learning these works?
  4. Understanding what makes up a cello suite
  5. Understanding the variety of the violin sonatas and partitas
  6. Crafting an interpretation
  7. How do I make Bach’s writings my own statement?
