One of the best known of Bach's pupils, Johann Philipp Kirnberger published this 1777 collection of dances with the aim of developing a student's sense of time and rhythm. Kirnberger mixes pieces in the traditional French dance style (Passepied Gavotte Gigue Musette etc.) with more up-to-date pre-Classical forms including a Polonaise and Cossack.
