Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
Two manuscripts containing 7 keyboard partita's are held by the Staatsbibliothek Berlin. The partita's vary in length, the number of dances, their type and order seem somewhat arbitrary. But they all have one thing in common: they stick to the mind. Originally meant for harpsichord, they work very well on organ too. The seven partita's form a collection of 51 pieces, each of which can be of great value in musical education, or as a quick to learn intermezzo during service. They are relatively easy, but written with great ingenuity and craftmanship.

The seventh and last partita comes from a manuscript containing just one partita. It is somewhat more ambitious than the other six partita's, both in scope and in length. The partita is in E flat major. A nice detail is that in 3 of the 8 dances the concluding phrases lean towards the minor tonality.
