This is the second movement of Johann Sebastian Bach’s French Suite no. 5 in G major, played on piano. It is a ‘Courante’: an old French dance that often occurs as part of suites, and often follows the allemande. It is a fast dance written in a three part time signature, for example a 6/4 time with many eighth notes. It is here performed as authentic as possible (with ornaments and repetitions)
