I love music.

I write about the music I like and have purchased for the benefit of better understanding it and sharing my preferences with others.

Bachcast 50: Partita II for Keyboard


Bach's second partita from the Clavier-Übung, his first official opus, is at first appearance a standard keyboard suite of dances. But Bach's use of some more unusual dance forms, the Rondeaux and the Capriccio provide a whiff of continental flavor, at least in the titles. These final pair of dances also set apart performances.

  • Anne-Marie McDermott, piano
  • Trevor Pinnock, harpsichord (1985, Archiv)
