    French Suite No 3 in Bm, BWV.814 (Scheideler)

    Bach's French Suites are among his most popular keyboard works, and are also much used as teaching material. This was already the case at the time of their composition, so that today a vast number of copies survive from Bachs own circle of students. These copies provide many, presumably authentic, variants. In this revised Henle Urtext, editor Ullrich Scheideler presents the complicated source situation with exemplary clarity.

    Suite No. III in b minor, BWV 814, is extracted from the complete volume HN 593/1593, and as a handy and reasonably-priced single edition is perfectly suited for teaching. This aspect is supplemented both by Michael Schneidts helpful fingerings and by the information provided on ornamentation: additional ornamentation signs from the copies have been transferred to our musical text, and the preface explains their execution, making this Urtext edition an excellent introduction to Baroque ornamentation practice too. As a further plus point, interesting differences between the sources are easily accessible in footnotes, while the Appendix contains the alternative Trio BWV 814a, which survives in several copies. In summary: an ideal entry-point into the world of Bach's Suites! - the publisher
