Music biography, Canadian non-fiction, Music
J.S. Bach, Pablo Casals, and the search for a Baroque masterpiece Bach's cello suites have become some of the most enduring pieces in history, but they remain shrouded in mystery - about when and how they were composed, whether they… were originally intended for the cello, how much influence Bach's second wife had on their composition, and what happened to Bach's original manuscript. Covers Bach and the missing manuscript from the eighteenth century; Pablo Casals and the discovery of the music in Spain in the late nineteenth century; and Siblin's own infatuation with the suites in the twenty-first.
