About 'Overture in a French Style BWV 831'
Bach, Johann Sebastian (biography)
21 March 1685 , Eisenach
28 July 1750 , Leipzig
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.
This is the first part (Ouverture) of Overture in the French Style BWV 831, originally for harpsichord, from the Second Part of the Clavier Übung. The movement is arranged for solo flute by Xorys.
