Prelude in D minor BWV 999 (orig. in C minor) by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) – Edited for guitar in D minor. The level is mid to late intermediate (Grade 7). Here is a free sheet music edition of Bach’s Prelude in D minor BWV999. Originally for lute in C minor it adapts nicely to guitar. I’ve added fingering throughout to help students. I’ve also made a tablature (tab) version for purchase. It was likely written on lute- harpsichord (lautenwerk), an uncommon instrument, and so it became popularly known as a Lute Suite. The first appearance of the work was found in a collection of keyboard works collected by Johann Peter Kellner (1705-1772). That said, the Prelude aspect of the work is certainly in a style common to lutes works of the era. Join the Email Newsletter to get updates on free sheet music and more.
