The Bach Cello Suites On Trumpet by David CooperThe Bach Cello Suites On Trumpet by David Cooper
"I have also made every effort to maintain the integrity of the Bach Cello Suites when I recorded them on the trumpet. I have pursued a warmer, 'woodier' tone by recording fairly close-miked and with a softer, more relaxed volume. I also tried to model the trumpet sound after the cello with regard to articulation, phrasing, vibrato and ornamentation. "

Bernat on Bach - Six Suites for Double Bass
'Recently featured on National Public Radio's Morning Edition broadcast throughout the U.S., double bassist Mark Bernat and his recording of Bach's Six Suites have generated considerable interest in the world of classical music. Performed by cellists for many years, these major works have become important additions to the double bass repertoire. For double bassists, the recording supplements Mr. Bernat's transcription of the Suites published by International Music Company, widely regarded as the definitive edition among double bassists. For a more general audience, this recording provides a refreshing perspective on Bach's music, enhanced by the depth and richness of Mr. Bernat's performance. The first of its kind, this landmark recording is destined to become a classic among double bassists and Bach enthusiasts alike.'

Bach: the Baroque, and Beyond
'Bach: the Baroque and Beyond" is a graduate seminar in music theory and analysis that Northern Arizona University is delivering via the World-Wide Web this fall. The course explores themes which emerge in the 18th century, reach heights of tonal complexity in the music of J. S. Bach, and have continued to inspire and inform composers into the 19th and 20th centuries. The purpose of the seminar is to illustrate how musical structure and style in the western classical tradition draw from a continuum of techniques composers have sought consciously to exploit. Many of these techniques originated in the baroque with pedagogies transmtting them to musicians of the last two centuries having consistently used Bach as model.'
