These two works date from the period of Bach’s life spent in Cöthen, in the employ of the court of Prince Leopold. The sonata ranges from the stately solemnity of the opening Adagio through a vigorous Fugue and a graceful Siciliana to a moto-perpetuo-like finale. In the freer form of the Partita, each of the main movements – Allemanda, Correnta, Sarabande, and Tempo di Borea (or Bourrée) – is followed by a Double (or variation).
