Johann Sebastian Bach: Partiten 1-3 (HENLE)
Partiten 1-3 (HENLE)
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750)
Each one of Bachs six Partitas features seven great single movements, predominantly in the sequence: Präludium Allemande Courante Sarabande [two free dances] Gigue. These partitas can justifiably be described as Bachs ultimate cycle of suites. As regards the artistic and manual demands, it goes far beyond its English and French siblings that are also frequently played. It is no coincidence that Bach only had these six partitas printed (1731), and what is more as Opus 1.
- Partita 1 B flat major BWV 825
- Partita 2 c minor BWV 826
- Partita 3 a minor BWV 827
