Abstract

J. S. Bach, in his Italian Concerto, has the solo keyboard carry on a dialogue with itself. The work appeared in 1735 in Bach's Clavierubung, Volume II, which had to excuse its printed existence by explaining that it had instructional value. And so, along with this Concerto Nach Italiaennischen Gusto, or concerto "following the Italian taste," it also included an Overture (or Partita) " in the French manner. "
