Bach - The Complete Lute Suites

Title: The Complete Lute Suites

Author: J.S. Bach

Description: This book is a collection of Bach’s four complete lute suites; BWV 995, 996,997 and 1006a; as well as the Prelude, Fugue and Allegro (BWV 998). Each suite contains six movements; Prelude, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Bouree (or Gavotte), and Gigue. When played on Marimba, these suites can be extremely technically difficult as well as a great musical challenge.
