Bach's French and English Suites

Andrea Bacchetti, piano

Works by J. S. Bach y W. A. Mozart

The French Suites and the English Suites feature in this concert by the pianist Andrea Bacchetti. Bach composed the former around 1720, shortly after the death of his first wife. Their intention seems to have been didactic, which has led scholars to believe that perhaps they were intended for his pupil Anna Magdalena, who would become his second wife. In turn, the English Suites were composed around 1715, while the composer was working at the Weimar court.
