All the pdfs of Suzuki 3 online are photographed from the same copy which has the original bowings tippexed out and new ones put in.
I'm wondering if it's worth buying a good cello score and making my own transcriptions, assuming I can't find a pdf online. I've got one paper copy, but it's transcribed for guitar, so no bowings.
I've got the IMSLP original of the bourrée, which is a bit spartan, and possibly mis-copied by the copyists, and I'm wondering if it will be sufficient or if I should find a modern edition. What do you think? Otoh, a modern edition will be someone's interpretation of "IMSLP", and we should be confident enough to do our own interpreting.
It's also possible that the entire cello opus is OTT for violin and that working on little bits of the IMSLP material at a time should be more than enough for a violinist.
For example, something that irks me about the BWV1007 prelude is how even the best cellists in the world seem to accelerate during bars and sections, and I don't like that. I'd like to attempt it as an exercise in playing rigidly to tempo (although I'm almost never averse to a little bit of rubato)
