Suite 3. V. Bourrée.

This is the high point of the entire sequence for me. This movement. Yet ironically this is where I stalled, listening instead to the Goldberg Variations, the Well-Tempered Klavier, Beethoven's late quartets... According to my computer I have listened to this 14 times.

What is a Bourrée anyway? This is where you normally expect to find a minuet.
