Reflections by sarah freiberg: "rather than continue to give examples of the differences between the sources, i urge my fellow cellists to check out this new barenreiter edition of the bach suites themselves. it really shows us all the options and lets us make our own choices. while making one’s own edition is time-consuming and challenging, this urtext provides a lot of guidance. even if you prefer other editions, this is an invaluable resource for any cellist."
