In 1735 Johann Sebastian Bach published his French Overture BWV 831 together with the famous Italian Concerto as the second part of his “Clavier-Ubung”. The designation Ouvertüre (Overture) can be somewhat misleading, since this work consists not just of an opening movement but also of a full-fledged partita with 11 movements: Ouvertüre, Courante, Gavotte I & II, Passepied 1 & II, Sarabande, Bouree I & II, Gigue and Echo. In terms of melodic richness and rhythmic play it is on par with its sister-pieces from Part 1 of the “Clavier Ubung”, the 6 Partitas BWV 825-830.
