Suite #2 in b minor (BWV 1067) composed by JS Bach
Edited by Mariassy Istvan for Flute and Piano
Includes score and parts
It is only fair that the Suite in b minor by J.S. Bach has become such a popular piece in flute literature. The version for flute and piano of the present edition has a double aim. On the one hand, it offers help for studying the work and solving the performing problems the Suite abounds in. On the other hand, it permits playing the composition (or incidentally only certain movements of it) by those, too, who would otherwise lack the opportunity of having an orchestra at their disposal.
The rhythm and embellished version of the slow sections of the Overture and Sarabande are included above the main text. This has been advisable for two reasons: for one thing, because an explanation for each ornament can thus be found and secondly, because the overdotted rhythm of the Overture could not have been lucidly notated in any other way. (See provided SAMPLE page for example).
