Suite No. 3 in B Minor, BWV 814, is extracted from the complete volume HN 593, and as a handy and reasonably-priced single edition is perfectly suited for teaching. This aspect is supplemented both by Michael Schneidt's helpful fingerings and by the information provided on ornamentation: additional ornamentation signs from the copies have been transferred to our musical text, and the Preface explains their execution, making this Urtext edition an excellent introduction to Baroque ornamentation practice too. As a further plus point, interesting differences between the sources are easily accessible in footnotes, while the Appendix contains the alternative Trio BWV 814a, which survives in several copies. in summary: an ideal entry-point into the world of Bach's Suites!
