Johann Sebastian Bach, Musette, BWV 808

Bach statue again

J.S. Bach

Good technique is needed for this musette. The right hand has numerous eighth notes, which need clarity and speed. The left hand also has some difficulties. The fifth finger has a droning G throughout the entire piece, creating a sound imitative of a bagpipe. Above this note, the left hand also has moving quarter notes. Bringing out the melodic line is important so that the texture does not become too thick.
