This is a lively little piece written in the style of a popular baroque dance which had its origins with the British jig. Bach wrote many of these delightful pieces. The main difficulty is the typically baroque “non-stop” rhythm without pauses as well as the fingering. The correct fingering should be used from the very first reading to ensure that the fingers develop body memory ♥. Changing fingers dramatically slows down the learning process.

♥ Body Memory: Learning a piece of music quickly is much easier if one takes care to never change a fingering from that very first note. When a concert pianist’s fingers fly over the keys as he plays a difficult passage, he is actually operating almost 90% automatically … his fingers have learned the notes by repetition.
