Bach, J.S. - French Suites BWV 812–817 and French Overture BWV 831 for Piano
Books - Piano - Repertoire
This new edition of Bach’s French Suites (BWV 812–817) pairs these works with the large-scale French Overture in B minor (BWV 831) from the second part of the Clavier-Übung. It brings together on the one hand six essentially small-format keyboard suites of moderate difficulty and on the other the most extensive and substantial of Bach’s sets of suites.
The player is provided with as clear and comprehensible a score as possible, and makes it easier to approach the work, while those of an academic bent can refer to the Editorial Report for a documentation of sources, editorial additions and ornaments of a comprehensiveness otherwise found only in critical complete editions.
