Suite in F minor, BWV823
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
A suite (although possibly only a fragment of one) which deserves more frequent hearings is the Suite in F minor, BWV823. The beauty of the Sarabande alone makes it worth playing. Again we have a very French flavour, beginning with the Prélude which is a poised Rondeau with three couplets. The Sarabande is also ‘en Rondeau’ and is marked da capo. The authenticity of this suite has been questioned, but surely this movement carries the stamp of J S Bach. The Gigue is a ‘canarie’, the lightly tripping kind that we find elsewhere in his keyboard works, notably in the French Overture, the B minor French Suite, and variation 7 of the ‘Goldberg’.
