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 Ouverture (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: Ouverture, Courante, Gavotte I & II, Passepied I & II, Sarabande, Bourree I & II, Gigue and Echo. In terms of melodic richness and rhythmic play it is on a par with its sister-pieces from Part 1 of the 'Clavier Ubung', the 6 Partitas BWV 825-830.
