The piece is the fifth movement from Suite in E minor for Lute. It is also initially composed for the lute, a stringed instrument with a neck and a deep round back that surrounds a hollow cavity. This instrument was popular before the 19th century, often used for social entertainment such as playing an instrument or as an instrument for a dance.
It can also refer as a social dance that accompanies the piece. The term and the dance have French origins, the dance has many varieties, usually with quick, skipping steps. Sometimes, dancers wear wooden clogs to emphasize their actions and the sound of the clog hitting the floor. The only known reference to the suite and the actual composition is "Praeludio — con la Suite da Gio: Bast. Bach," a piece for the lute-harpsichord.
Bach is the last child of his family and was born to a family of composers. He was an orphan at age 10 and lived with his older brother, Johann Christoph Bach. Under his brother, his career in music flourished and the rest, as they say, is history. Other Key Signatures.
