About 'Prelude from Suite no.1 for unaccompanied cello'

Artist: Bach, Johann Sebastian (biography)   (sheet music)
Born:21 March 1685 , Eisenach
Died:28 July 1750 , Leipzig
The Artist:One of the greatest composers of all time. Bach wrote hundreds of pieces for organ, choir, as well as many other instruments. He spent most of his life as a church organist and a choir director. His music combines profound expression with clever musico-mathematical feats, like fugues and cannons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.
Composition Date:c. 1717–1723
Composition Info:Bach Cello Suites are some of the most frequently performed and recognizable solo compositions ever written for cello.
The suites have been transcribed for numerous instruments, including the violin, viola, double bass, viola da gamba, mandolin, piano, marimba, classical guitar, recorder, electric bass, horn, saxophone, bass clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, ukulele, and charango.
The suites have been performed and recorded by many renowned cellists such as Pablo Casals, János Starker, Pierre Fournier, Paul Tortelier, Mstislav Rostropovich, Yo-Yo Ma, Mischa Maisky and Daniel Shafran.

I think this score is incorrect in measure 11. The second and sixth "D" notes are acutally "E" notes. So, it should go D, F(nat), E, F(nat).

I think that if they are going to have people view the song on the GIF, then it should be on cello, not piano. And it would sound much better if it were slower.
