English Suite No. 3, BWV 808 (6/7)

VI : Gavotte II - Musette



This Musette is the sixth of seven movements in Johann Sebastian Bach's English Suite No. 3 in G minor, BWV 808.

This English Suite is part of Bach's Six English Suites, BWV 806-811.

These English suites were composed between 1715 and 1720 and first published in Leipzig between 1805 and 1813.

The Gavotte II (also known as Musette) in the present score is appropriate for Grade 4 piano or harpsichord players.

Please note that this score contains a suggestion for performing the ornaments (here, a trill) in accordance with the performance practice of the Baroque period.

Namely, trills are to be played ON the beat, starting on the upper auxiliary note.

This Musette is a good study in sustained notes and quality of tone.

The word Musette is the French name of the bagpipe.

This musical instrument gave its name to a musical dance-like piece in which the melody is accompanied by a single sustained bass note imitating the long-held drone bass of the bagpipe.

Duration : 00:59
