Suzuki Book 3 Viola – Gavotte From Orchestral Suite No. 3 – Bach


A play through of Bach Gavotte from Suzuki Viola Book 3. This piece is from the Orchestral Suite No. 3. This can be used as a reference or to play along when you know the piece. Please note that I am mostly using the bowings from the previous edition of Book 3. If you have the newest revised version the bowings are basically backwards in Gavotte 1. I have used both the old and new bowings with success but am using the older ones for this video. If you have a teacher, always do whatever the teacher says. Perhaps I will do a video with all the revised bowings later as I did for my violin videos of Book 3. Thanks so much for watching.
