In the last measures of the prelude to Bach's Cello suite there are dotted half notes followed by 16th notes played in the same measure. #What does this mean to a Cello player? #Are they playing the same note on different strings? #I can't figure out how that would be done. #Can anyone explain this? #I am limited by the fact that I learned notation from piano and chorus in my distant past, and this notation doesn't make sense on the piano.
Also, if you want to join me in learning this prelude, please be aware that Werner Ickling .pdf files for the violin neglect to tie the notes in the first and second measure, and elsewhere, although they are tied properly in the viola and cello versions.
Ha, ha! keep time: how sour sweet music is,
When time is broke and no proportion kept!
