French Overture B Minor Bwv 831 Piano Solo

French Overture in B Minor BWV 831


French Overture in B Minor BWV 831 - Edition with Fingering (Softcover)

(ed. Rudolf Steglich; fing. Hans-Martin Theopold)

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.
