J. S. Bach - Badinerie from Orchestral Suite No. 2

Sheet music for violin

Info: The Badinerie has become a show-piece for solo flautists because of its quick pace and difficulty. It is part of Suite No. 2 in B minor, BWV 1067 of "Orchestral suites" (called ouvertures by their author).
Opus number: BWV 1067
Date: 1739
Artist: Johann Sebastian Bach
Born: 21 March 1685 , Eisenach

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.
