The Croatian Baroque Orchestra performs “Badinerie” from Johann Sebastian Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor, BWV 1067. Recorded on November 21, 2010, at the Croatian Music Institute. Baroque flute (soloist): Ana Benić.
The Badinerie (literally “jesting” in French – in other works Bach used the Italian word with the same meaning, “Scherzo“) has become a show-piece for solo flautists because of its quick pace and difficulty.
The term “Scherzo” frequently refers to a fast-moving humorous composition which may or may not be part of a larger work.
