Suite I

Feb. 19th, 2017

Allemande

The basso of this movement is a reconstruction.

in the Vda part of this movement: The triplet 16ths are beamed together by 3’s, not by 6.

Bar 21 vda beat 1 is tied to beat 2.

Gavott.

bar 7 basso both d’s have the figure 6. the two e’s have 4 and 3 respectively.

Bar 10 basso in the manuscript there is # over the downbeat c#

Bar 11 basso the first note has the figure 2

Bar 12 basso the first note has the figure 4/2

Bar 15 vda the second slur might be read as a tie for the two d’’s

Bar 20 vda in the manuscript the second note is sounds g’#

Double

Bar 8 vda in the manuscript the last note is a g’#

Rondeaux

Like the Allemande this bass line is a reconstruction. The slurs are difficult to be certain about.

Bar 1 vda in the manuscript the first note is doubled, as it is in bar 25.

Bar 8 vda scordatura part in the manuscript the second note is written an octave lower.

Bar 9 vda in the manuscript the 16th notes are slurred 2 x 2.

Aria

Oddly, there seems to be a Petite Reprise from the first repeat back to the 3rd beat of bar 5.

Menuet

Bar 1 - 2 basso. in the manuscript the a is tied over the bar line as it was in the previous movement.

Bouree

Bar 16 vda in the manuscript the two 8th notes sound e g#

Bar 22 vda in the manuscript there 8th note on the 4th beat is d’ not a.

Guigz

I do not have the facsimile for the vda part of this movement.

Bar 25 basso In the manuscript beat 2 is tied over to the next bar.

Bar 31 basso beat 2. in the manuscript it looks to me like the 3 8th notes are slurred together.
