Partitas for harpsichord – J.S.Bach, Opus 1 (1731)

 

With the French Suites and the English Suites, the six Partitas for Harpsichord form Bach’s trilogy of keyboard suites. He must have thought of them as an essential part of his creative development, because he himself arranged for their publication in Leipzig between 1726 and 1731, when he compiled them and had the complete collection printed as Opus 1

In 1731, Bach held the exhausting position of Cantor at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig. He had reached the age of forty and composed such essential works as the first book of the Well-Tempered Clavier, but he had not yet published any of his compositions.



Although modestly titled “Exercises for the Keyboard”, the six Partitas, offered by their composer “to music lovers as refreshment for their spirits,” are works of an altogether astonishing richness and complexity. Bach’s Partitas for keyboard represent his final contribution to the dance suite form, just as this genre began to run out of steam in the face of the increasing popularity of the sonata.
