Bach, Johann Sebastian (1685–1750)

Suite (Partita), c BWV 997

Work for lute instruments


Scoring
different setting instructions:
Lute in D LEm III 11.5, "Clavicembalo" in other sources (s. KB V/10, p. 141-146); as the Double cannot be played on a lute (because of the range) it might have been intended to be played on a lutepiano.
Comment
about setting: BWV 997/5 (Double) could have been written for a "Lautenclavizymbel" or "Lautenwerk" (s. J. Adlung: "Musica mechanica organoedi", II, p. 139, appendix by J. F. Agricola, 1768). The experiments with this instruments were widely acclaimed in Leipzig during Bach's times.
