About 'Badinerie from French Suite No.2'
||Bach, Johann Sebastian (biography) (sheet music)|
|Born:||21 March 1685
|Died:||28 July 1750
|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 canons in which the same melody is played against itself in various ways.|
Bach's four orchestral suites were probably written between 1717 and 1723, when Bach served as the Kapellmeister to the Cöthen court of music-loving Prince Leopold von Anhalt-Cöthen. The Badinerie comes from the second suite.
