The Clavierubung published in four sections belongs to the few works of Bach that he allowed to be printed during his lifetime. Part I; which appeared in print in 1731; contains the six Partitas; Parts II-IV were issued in 1735; 1739 and 1741/2. These are the parts that form the basis for the compilation that we find in this volume. The Italian Concerto and the French Overture constitute Part II and; in a way; serve as a kind of echo of French and Italian orchestral music of that time; here transposed to the keyboard. The Four Duets are contained in Part III of the Clavierubung; next to important works for the organ; however; since they are conceived for the two parts; they are ideal for piano or harpsichord.
