Johann Sebastian Bach, arr. by Ian Anderson

Bourée

Bourée is Ian Anderson’s twentieth century reconceptualization of J. S. Bach’s eighteenth century composition Bourrée in E minor.

A bourrée is a seventeenth century French dance, usually in 3/4 or 2/2 time beginning with an upbeat.

The inspiration for Bourée came to Ian Anderson through his floorboards.
