Here is Rhayn’s take on Allegro BWV 998 J.S. Bach, and why this guide will help you.
This is a classical galant style dance section, the sixteenth notes lend an air to the improvised feel we had before. However this is Bach reigning in the more passionate side from the fugue’s second section. This is has some truly beautiful moments in it, well worth the trouble to learn.
Note: you will need to have some technique already to play this – late beginner to intermediate.
