BACH: Partita no.6 in E minor, BWV 830
The Partita for keyboard No. 6 in E minor, BWV 830, is a keyboard suite by Johann Sebastian Bach composed between 1726 and 1729 and published in 1731. It is the last suite in his Clavier-Übung I, Op. 1.
Although each of the six Partitas was published separately, they were collected into a single volume (1731), known as the Clavier-Übung I (Keyboard Practice), which Bach himself chose to label his Opus 1. Unlike the earlier sets of suites, Bach originally intended to publish seven Partitas, advertising in the Spring of 1730 upon the publication of the fifth Partita that the promised collected volume would contain two more such pieces.
