Summary
Siblin weaves together three dramatic narratives: Bach's composition of the Cello Suites and the manuscript's subsequent disappearance in the eighteenth century; Pablo Casals' historic discovery and popularization of the music in Spain in the late-nineteenth century; and Siblin's own infatuation with the suites at the dawn of the twenty-first century
Summary
Introduces Johann Sebastian Bach's "Cello Suites," discussing how the composition was lost in the eighteenth century and discovered by Pablo Casals in the late nineteenth century, and some of the historical questions remaining about the piece
