Waltz of the Flowers.They are sometimes referred to in English as the sonatas and partias for solo violin in accordance with Bach's headings in the autograph manuscript: "Partia" plural "Partien" was commonly used in German-speaking regions during Bach's time, whereas the Italian "partita" was introduced to this set in the Bach Gesellschaft edition, having become standard by that time.

The 2nd Partita is widely known for its Chaconneconsidered one of the most masterful and expressive works ever written for solo violin. The set was completed by but was not published until by Nikolaus Simrock in Bonn. Even after publication, it was largely ignored until the celebrated violinist Joseph Joachim started performing these works. Today, Bach's Sonatas and Partitas are an essential part of the violin repertoire, and they are frequently performed and recorded. Some believe the literal meaning of the title "sei solo" when read as German rather than Italian words Be alone [imperative] is an intentional reference to the recent sudden death of his wife.

This theory is popular among musicians but not among Bach scholars, though the exceptional indication of the year of completion on the title page does seem to indicate a payment of homage to his wife. As Wolff comments, the paucity of sources for instrumental compositions prior to Bach's period in Leipzig makes it difficult to establish a precise chronology; nevertheless, a copy made by the Weimar organist Johann Gottfried Walther in of the Fugue in G minor for violin and continuo, BWVwhich has violinistic writing similar to that in BWV —, provides support for the commonly held view that the collection could have been reworked from pieces originally composed in Weimar.

The goal of producing a polyphonic texture governed by the rules of counterpoint also indicates the influence of the first surviving works of this kind for solo violin, Johann Paul von Westhoff 's partitas for solo violin composed in The virtuoso violinist Westhoff served as court musician in Dresden from to and in Weimar from until his death inso Bach would have known him for two years.

The tradition of polyphonic violin writing was already well-developed in Germany, particularly by Biber, Johann Heinrich Schmelzerand the composers of the so-called Dresden school — Johann Jakob Walther and Westhoff. So there exist in all 13 varied sonatas and partitas in the 'senza Basso' group.

Bach himself underwrote the practice of Basso Continuo as the Fundament of Music, which was the common denominator in all artistic music in his time. A solo sonata for violin would naturally have the continuo players and parts implied, here Bach himself tells us that Basso Continuo does not apply. The norm was set by Corelli's important solo sonatas of op.

Written is the bass line, with numbers and incidentals to point to desired harmonies that are to be worked out by the harpsichordist or lute player, to which a low register bowed or blown instrument can be added to double the left hand bass line. This was a given, the 'senza Basso' pieces are the exception in that they challenge the player to realise various layers wherein some notes and patterns are the accompaniment of other parts, so that a polyphonic discourse is written into the music.

Arpeggios over several strings, multiple stopping and opposing tonal ranges and particularly very deft bowing are exploited to the full to make all the voices speak from one bow and four strings, or five, or from a single flute. It is not known whether these violin solos were performed during Bach's lifetime or, if they were, who the performer was.

Friedrich Wilhelm Rustwho would later become part of the Bach family circle in Leipzig, also became a likely candidate. According to his son Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach"in his youth, and until the approach of old age, he played the violin cleanly and powerfully". Upon Bach's death inthe original manuscript passed into the possession, possibly through his second wife Anna Magdalenaof Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach.

It was inherited by the last male descendant of J. Four other early manuscripts also exist. One, originally identified as an authentic Bach autograph from his Leipzig period, is now identified as being a copy dating from —32 by Bach's second wife Anna Magdalena Bach, and is the companion to her copy of the six suites Bach wrote for solo cello. Another copy, dated July 3, the date is on the final pagemade by one of Bach's admirers Johann Peter Kellneris well preserved, despite the fact that the B minor Partita was missing from the set and that there are numerous deviations and omissions.

These differences may have come from an earlier source or composing copy, and not necessarily copying errors on Kellner's part. Two other eighteenth century manuscripts, both by unidentified copyists, have also survived. The first edition was printed in by Nikolaus Simrock of Bonn. It is clear from errors in it that it was not made with reference to Bach's own manuscript, and it has many mistakes that were frequently repeated in later editions of the 19th century. One of the most famous performers of the Sonatas and Partitas was the violinist and composer Georges Enescuwho considered this work as "The Himalayas of violinists" and recorded all the sonatas and partitas in the late s.

One of his students Serge Blanc collected the notes of his master Enescu regarding sonority, phrasing, tempo, fingering and expression, in a now freely distributed document.

The sonatas each consist of four movements, in the typical slow-fast-slow-fast pattern of the sonata da chiesa. The first two movements of each sonata are a prelude and a fugue.

The third slow movement is lyrical, while the final movement shares the similar musical structure as a typical binary suite movement. Unlike the sonatas, the partitas are of more unorthodox design. Although still making use of the usual baroque style of allemandecourantesarabandeand giguewith some omissions and the addition of galanteriesnew elements were introduced into each partita to provide variety.Log in or sign up for free and participate in the Free-scores.
