 Bach Cello Suites for Eb bass clarinet
Author: tdufka

Hi again,

I am aware of the Alea Suites transcribed for bass clarinet which require an extended instrument (down to low D) and have previously played the originals in bass clef on an extended instrument, which result in the piece sounding a whole tone lower than the original.

What I am looking for is a published version of the six suites for bass clarinet that utilizes the low Eb of the smaller bass clarinet as the lowest note (i.e. concert C#/Db)

I realize that this would mean that the pieces would sound a semi-tone higher than as written for cello.

Is anyone aware of such a thing?

Does anyone have any experience with any of the four versions listed here besides the Alea: https://www.grothmusic.com/p-41852-6-suites-bwv-1007-1012-transcribed-for-bass-clarinet.aspx

thanks for any help!
