Hello, I'm wondering if anyone can help me construct a list of Bach's English and French Suites and Partitas in rough order of difficulty. I am trying to choose music for an advanced student and I don't completely trust my own assessment of difficulty for music I have not played. When choosing Bach for myself I am routinely way off in how long I think it will take me to learn. I have a few graded lists of repertoire, but none include the suites or partitas as whole works; they only include isolated movements. Difficulty can vary a lot from one movement to the next. And part of the difficulty is just dealing with the length -- learning 30 minutes of music is a different task from learning one allemande! Let's use a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is equivalent to the Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach (learning the whole work), 5 is equivalent to learning three preludes and three fugues chosen randomly from the WTK, and 10 is equivalent to the Goldberg variations (learning the whole work). I'll rate the pieces I've actually played as a whole: English Suite no. 2 in A minor BWV 807: rating 6 Partita in B flat BWV 825: rating 4 Feel free to argue with my ratings as well as to add your own.
