Bart Jacobs


”Le toucher de Bart Jacobs y fait des merveilles.”
– Diapason

The suites for keyboard date from various periods in Bach’s life: his early career in Arnstadt, the time he spent in Weimar at the court of Willem Ernst, Duke of Saxe-Weimar, and the legendary Leipzig period. He wrote many of his famous works for the organ in Weimar, as well as the Suite, BWV 823. Only fragments of this suite have been preserved, which makes one wonder about the many works by Bach that have been lost over the centuries. Suites BWV 818 and BWV 819 can be found in many source documents, often in combination with the French Suites. They are educational pieces that Bach often got his students to play. One of them, Johann Philipp Kirnberger, wrote about the importance of playing these dances to be able to develop into a fully-fledged musician.
