In the violonchelo score of Баха Сюита номер 2, there are two notes that I don't understand, and I hope there's someone who knows about this. One says:

до С.С.

and later there's another:


Also, I want to know where to find a musical diccionary for russian terminology since there are a lot of russian scores with russian notes in them.

Спасибо большое.

    These notes mean nothing without the actual scores, I'm afraid that without seeing the scores no one here can help you.

  • "до С. С." is probably two separate things; one that says "[play] until C" and the next is where "C" already begins. "В. П." could be literally anything (to a layman, anyway; my four years of piano lessons suggest nothing). I second the idea that seeing the score would help. Dec 26, 2014 at 21:26
  • @YellowSky Thank you, here there is the score.

    @AnaGalois I've taken the liberty of referring it to a general Russian Q&A site, you can watch the answers there: otvet.mail.ru/question/173565791 Dec 27, 2014 at 7:46

    The outsourcing has worked! "До С.С." is "до середины смычка" (till the middle of the bow), "В.П." is "верхняя половина" (upper half [of the bow]). Dec 27, 2014 at 8:03

  • @Nikolay Ershov, I took some time trying to resolve this - unsuccessfully. I take my hat off. :)
