Bach‚Äôs six French Suites, BWV 812-817 are among the composer‚Äôs most satisfyingly melodious works for keyboard. Less demanding than the great English Suites and Partitas, they represent Bach at his most tuneful and galant, giving the lie to any notion that his music was always severe in its contrapuntal demands, or lacking in melodic sensuousness. Completing this set are the short preludes from the Clavierb√ľchlein for Wilhelm Friedemann, composed to develop the musical skills of Bach‚Äôs children.
