Johann Sebastian Bach: Partitas

This is the last of Bach’s sets of keyboard suites, written in Leipzig. They were published singly beginning in 1726.
A new partita appeared each year thereafter until 1731, when the whole collection was issued under the name of Clavierübung I.
Like the English Suites, the Partitas all begin with a prelude of some sort; however, while in the earlier collection this is always a ritornello-type movement (except in the first suite), the first movements of the partitas are in various forms: a fantasia, an ouverture, a toccata etc.
Despite the fact that he had already composed hundreds of cantatas, the Well-Tempered Clavier, the great Passions and many other works, the Partitas were Bach´s first published body of works.

xx Which Bach Partita is Approachable?
March 05, 2005, 01:29:53 AM by gkatele

I am a returning intermediate student (at the age of 54). I stopped playing for about 30 years! Since arriving at my advanced age, I have  developed a love for Bach.  I started (once again) taking lessons about 6 months ago,  and I have the itch to learn one of the Bach partitas. The question is, which one is do-able for my level.

In the last 6 months, I have learned (by no means mastered!) the WTC Book 1 preludes and fugues in C major and minor. Am currently working on the G-minor from book 1. I was (questionably) facile with the Rach C# minor prelude and Liszt's Liebestraum.

Any suggestions which one I should tackle?

(Sheet Music Plus had a sale on Henle editions, and I took advantage!)

Thanks in advance,
