J. S. Bach - Orchestral Suite No. 2 (V. Polonaise & Double)

Sheet music for flute

Info: Fifth movement (Polonaise and Double) of the Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor, BWV 1067, scored for strings, continuo, and solo flute. The polonaise is a stately, festive dance, always in triple meter. Often, the polonaise employed repeated rhythmic figures, as Bach does here with many dotted rhythms in each measure. The term double referred to a type of variation, usually composed mostly of embellishments. In this case, the double employs the main theme of the polonaise, while the flute plays an ornate variation over-top.

Date: 1738–39
Artist: Johann Sebastian Bach

The artist: One of the greatest composers of all time. Bach wrote hundreds of pieces for organ, choir, as well as many other instruments. He spent most of his life as a church organist and a choir director. His music combines profound expression with clever musico-mathematical feats, like fugues and cannons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.
