The six partitas for keyboard form the last set of suites that Bach composed, and are the most technically demanding of the three. They were composed between and or As with the French and English Suites, the autograph manuscript of the Partitas is no longer extant. In keeping with a nineteenth-century naming tradition that labelled Bach's first set of Suites English and the second French, the Partitas are sometimes referred to as the German Suites.
In comparison with the two earlier sets of suites, the Partitas are by far the most free-ranging in terms of structure. Unlike the English Suitesfor example, wherein each opens with a strict preludethe Partitas feature a number of different opening styles including an ornamental Overture and a Toccata. The second of these is an eleven-movement partita, the largest such keyboard work Bach ever composed, and may in fact be the elusive "seventh partita" mentioned in The Overture in the French style was originally written in C minor, but was transposed a half step down for publication to complete the tonal scheme of Parts I and II as described below.

Bach: Partita No.
Buy this album at: CD : Amazon. Each Partita has six or seven movements, opens with an abstract movement, and follows with contrasting movements, mostly in traditional dance form which is strongly ornamented. An Allemande, Corrente, and Sarabande are common to all six partitas. Partita No. Each of the versions is highly effective and different.
Maggie Cole is my favorite; her performance is strongly straight-foward with outstanding accenting. The Allemande, if played fast, becomes an exciting and even thrilling listening experience. Hewitt and Schepkin are fast, but the excitement they provide comes and goes.
Schepkin again displays delicacy, but it does not fit the music. Hewitt slows down on occasion. The other fast versions are Cole and Pires. Cole is very exciting with great forward momentum, but it's the reading of Pires which is special. She just isn't fast, she's like "lightning".
The performance is thrilling throughout, but more significant, she provides the most emotional themes of any version and makes them stick; the sense of urgency is stunning. This is a virtuoso performance. The slower versions come from Pinnock, Leonhardt, and Tureck; each one is at Cole's level. Pinnock gives the most beautiful reading with fine urgency.
Leonhardt looks inward with a sense of comfort, and Tureck excellently uses her staccato to weave a musical spell; also, the contrast between the staccato and legato passages is superb.
Bach, J.S.: Partitas Nos. 5-6, Bwv 829-830
The Corrente's joy and contentment leaps off the page. The music is also exciting and has an infectious bounce to it. Three versions are not satisfying: Tureck drains the music of excitement, Schepkin's trills are annoying and he loses zest toward the end, and Pires becomes much too soft-focused at times.
Cole is the most exciting. Hewitt excellently contrasts her use of staccato and legato. Leonhardt and the smoother flowing Pinnock deliver incisive readings that are highly rewarding. Any of these four versions should give much pleasure.
Next is a lovely Sarabande possessing great stature, dignity, and tenderness. How the artist handles the ornamentation and accenting is of crucial importance. I can't muster up much enthusiasm for Schepkin, Pires, or Pinnock. Schepkin trivializes the music a little through cute ornamentation and weak accenting; his interpretation is too playful and lacking weight. Pires is quite weak on accenting, and most of the urgency is diluted. Pinnock just doesn't penetrate me; his style of ornamentation leaves me cold.

It is an excellent resource for students and teachers alike and there is very rarely any need to visit another website or music store in search of sheet music. The pieces are all well-graded and the audio is really useful, especially for pieces not heard before.
I have recommended the site to many of my friends who play the piano. Keep up the good work. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site.
I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels.
It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
