Unknown Bach #5




* Harpsichord Christoph Kern (Staufen im Breisgau, 2013) from Michael Mietke (Berlin, ca. 1710)


    J.-S. BACH
    Partita n° 5 in G major BWV 829
    Praeludium und fughetta BWV 899-902
    Duos BWV 802-805
    Praeludium, fuga and allegro in E flat major BWV 998
    Fantasia and fugue in C minor BWV 906

Keyboard Übung: this is the title that Bach gave to the first keyboard collection he prepared after his arrival in Leipzig; a collection of six partitas or suites for the harpsichord, that Bach wrote for the "recreation of amateurs". Üben: to exercise, practise, study … And amateurs do indeed need to exercise and study quite a bit to recreate these six highly demanding masterpieces, which are exercises as much for the fingers as for the mind, a complete pedagogical programme from this genius of the keyboard! Along with the fifth partita, Brice Pauset weaves lesser known works by the composer into a tapestry of subtle resonances and affinities. Take, for example, these Duettos originally written for the organ, that present beneath the immediacy of their seductive surface a contrapuntal complexity worthy of The Art of fugue. In the Grand Salon of the Auditorium, spend an intimate evening with the genial German composer.
