The French Suites (BWV 812-817) are comprised of six pieces that Bach composed for keyboard during his tenure as chapel master for Prince Leopold of Anhalt-Cöthen. The first five Suites make up part of Bach’s 1722 Notebook of keyboard music for his second wife, Anna Magdalena.
My favorite is Suite No. 4 in E-flat major (BWV 815). For me, the opening Allemande represents Bach’s continually unfolding love for Anna Magdalena whom he had married a year earlier.
I love this recording by pianist, András Schiff.
