While Christian Pezold’s name is little known today, many beginning keyboard players have played the two of his minuets for keyboard that the Bach family included anonymously in the Notebook for Anna Magdalena. Pezold was born in Koenigstein in 1677 and probably died in Dresden in 1733, where he had been the court organist. He was famous as an organist and composer of church music, though few works survive. The two partitas heard on Many Strings Attached are extant in a single 18th century source in the Dresden Landesbibliothek, from which many later copies derive.
