About 'Courante from Cello Suite no.1 '

Artist: Bach, Johann Sebastian (biography)
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:This dance comes from Bach's first unaccompanied suite. Altogether there are 6 of them. They were most likely composed during the period 1717–1723, when Bach served as a Kapellmeister in Köthen.
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.
