Each of Bach's six French suites is written in a different key with no harmonic relationship to one another, unlike most of his other works. Within each suite, all of the movements are in the same key and follow standard binary form. In the traditional Baroque suite, there are four movements: Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, and Gigue. However, Bach also includes lesser-used dances such as the Polonaise, Bourée, and Air. Noted Bach expert Dr. Hans Bischoff edited this collection. Titles: * No. 1 in D Minor * No. 2 in C Minor * No. 3 in B Minor * No. 4 in E-flat Major * No. 5 in G Major * No. 6 in E Major * Suite in A Minor * Suite in E-flat Major
The much anticipated 5th French Suite by J.S. Bach has finally been published inits entirety for classical guitar by internationally acclaimed Argentinian virtuoso Nestor Ausqui. This sui generis collection has been widely sought after by guitarists, whom for many years only could attain fragmented pieces of the suite. Now the entire suite is available for the first time! The transcriber must understand the essence and intent of the original, and then in the transcription, create the impression that the music was indeed originallywritten for the guitar. In this transcription of the 5th French Suite, Nestor Ausqui has accomplished this brilliantly.

The Keyboard Music of J.S. Bach provides an introduction to and comprehensive discussion of all the music for harpsichord and other stringed keyboard instruments by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). Often played today on the modern piano, these works are central not only to the Western concert repertory but to musical pedagogy and study throughout the world. Intended as both a practical guide and an interpretive study, the book consists of three introductory chapters on general matters of historical context, style, and performance practice, followed by fifteen chapters on the individual works, treated in roughly chronological order. The works discussed include all of Bach's individual keyboard compositions as well as those comprising his famous collections, such as the Well-Tempered Clavier, the English and French Suites, and the Art of Fugue.
