The Elson's Musical Dictionary published in 1905 defines a Partita as "The Earliest form of the instrumental suite. The partita had fewer movements than the suite and was treated in a freer manner. The facsimile that I have contains two partitas. They are similar to lute suites but neither contain a fugue. I have included the Fugue as an adendum if you wish to play it.

If you are looking for a great edition of Bach which you will be able to learn and perform, this is the book for you. It is carefully fingered and this is some of the best solo Bach I have ever heard. I have spent a lot of time carefully arranging and fingering this music so it will flow. This is a very manageable collection which you will be able to play with time. These pieces are a joy to play. When you hear the syncopation of the Fantasia, the beauty of the Sarabande, the playfulness of the Gigue and the excitement of the Double, you will know you have a collection that will last you your lifetime.
