Navigation etc.

  • Pisendel's manuscript quite difficult to read.
  • Written in Scordatura but without tuning indicated. Possible tuning (from top to bottom): D A F C F
  • The title on Pisendel's copy is Partia (partita), and Grove refers to it as such. Even RISM, though it classifies it as a suite, says that the title on the copy is "Partia". The page should probably be renamed Partita, with the "suites" tag removed, unless an autograph manuscript proves that Pezold intended "Suites" as the title, but so far, there is no evidence of that.
