Partita in A minor for flute solo (BWV 1013)

By Bach Johann Sebastian

J.S. Bach: Partita in A minor (BWV 1013) for flute solo was discovered only in 1917 when the manuscript that belonged to heirs of Bach collector Wilhelm Rust was acquired by the Royal Library in Berlin. Partita for unaccompanied flute was premiered in 1919 by René LeRoy, recent graduate of the Conservatoire de Paris. The Partita most likely was written during Bach's Köthen period, around 1720's when the composer became acquainted with transverse flute.

Bach Johann Sebastian

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was a German composer who is regarded as one of the most important composers in the history of music. Among most of his popular works – instrumental works for violin (Sonatas and Partitas), cello Suites, keyboard works (Goldberg Variations, The Well-Tempered Clavier) numerous organ compositions (e.g. Toccata and Fugue in D minor), numerous instrumental concertos for keyboard, violin and various instruments (Brandenburg Concertos) as well as some profound vocal music works: Mass in B minor; St. Matthew Passion etc.
J.S.Bach was born in Eisenach as part of The Bach family of musicians. Orphaned at the age of 10, young Johann Sebastian lived with his oldest brother Johann Christoph for five years. During the following years he worked at several protestant churches and as a Kapellmeister at the Prince Leopold court in Köthen (1717-1723).
In 1723 he was appointed as cantor at St. Thomas, the principal Lutheran church in Leipzig (after G.P.Telemann declined to relocate to Leipzig). Even though he was mostly perceived as organist at his time, he gained honorary appointment at the court of Frederic Augustus, King of Poland in Dresden.
