About 'Badinerie from French Suite No.2'

Artist: Bach, Johann Sebastian (biography)
Born:21 March 1685 , Eisenach
Died:28 July 1750 , Leipzig
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.
Composition Date:c.1717-1723
Composition Info:Bach's four orchestral suites were probably written between 1717 and 1723, when Bach served as the Kapellmeister to the C÷then court of music-loving Prince Leopold von Anhalt-C÷then. The Badinerie comes from the second suite.
