    Etymology: [It.]


  1. Partita

    Partita was originally the name for a single-instrumental piece of music, but Johann Kuhnau and later German composers used it for collections of musical pieces, as a synonym for suite. Johann Sebastian Bach wrote two sets of Partitas for different instruments. Those for solo keyboard the composer published as his Opus 1. One additional suite in B minor, the Overture in the French Style is sometimes also considered a Partita. Bach's Partitas are very rarely called the "German Suites", in analogy with the national naming of the English and French Suites. See Partitas for keyboard and choral partitas for organ. The "Partita" in A minor for solo flute which takes the form of a suite of four dances, has been given the title "partita" by its modern editors; it is sometimes transposed for oboe. Bach also wrote three partitas for solo violin in 1720 which he paired with sonatas. See: Sonatas and partitas for solo violin.
