About This Work

Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach & Adam Reicken Reicken

Arranger: André de Moura

Description: This is the last movement of Johann Adam Reincken's (1623-1722) Partita I en La mineur, from his collection entitled Hortus Musicus. Bach partially transcribed these works which were later catalogued under BWV 544, 555, 566. It is a Gigue in binary form crafted in imitative style, quite lively and uplifting. The original key suits the guitar quite well and the choice of instrumentation refers back to the original instrumental setting by Reincken. Guitarists should find this quite an effective piece for closing a concert!

Opus No.: BWV 544 BWV 555 BWV 566
