Both books provide a glimpse into the domestic music of the 18th century and the musical tastes of the Bach family.

Playing tips:

The notes should be slightly detached but completely even and rhythmical. The tied RH crotchets that are often placed over the bar line should feel syncopated, so give them a little emphasis. The hardest technical challenge here is the execution of the trills, especially in bars 21-24. Practise them out of context, very slowly. The score suggests two different fingerings for trilling (trill either with 2-3 or 3-4 – whatever feels comfiest for the hand). Pedal is not required.
