Bach French Overture in B minor BWV 831 Edition with Fingering

SKU 51481304

Edition with Fingering

In 1735 Johann Sebastion Bach published his French Overture BMV 831 together with the famous Italian Concerto as the second part of his “Clavier-Ubung.” The designation Ouvertüre (Overture) can be somewhat misleading, since this work consists not jut of an opening movement but also of a full-fledged partita with 11 movements: Ouverture, Courante, Gavotte I & II, Passepied I & 11, Sarabande, Bouree I & II, Gigue and Echo. In terms of melodic richness and rhythmic play it is on par with its sister-pieces from Part I of the “Clavier Ubung”, the 6 Partitas BMV 825-830.
