This is the first movement of Johann Sebastian Bach’s French Suite no. 5, played on piano. It is an ‘Allemande’: a gallant dance form that often occurs as part of suites, including the French Suite. The name ‘allemande’ comes from Germany (Allemagne is the French word for Germany) and was extinct as a dance in Germany around 1600, and was only used as a simple folk dance. However, the dance was then reimported via France (as ‘allemagne’) and England back to Germany and blossomed again in the later Baroque around 1680 as a stylized dance. It is here performed as authentic as possible( with ornaments and repetitions)
