Whereas violinists and cellists have six suites, flautists have to make do with one. The piece consists of four stylised dances. His playing undoubtedly inspired Bach, who wrote this suite with him in mind. At this time, the flute was still very much under development. Flutes could consist of three or four different parts and sometimes had extra extensions, which were interchangeable connecting pieces that varied in length, called corps de rechange.

A flute was therefore not just one instrument, but actually a kit of several pieces that made up a variety of lengths, allowing the flautist to play in different keys.

This suite lets the flautist show off all his techniques: rapid fingering changes, big leaps and little time to catch his breath. The piece ranges from the lowest possible note to the glorious high A at the end of the Allemande. It is also has a Sarabande, which has to be played slowly and expressively.

However, more recently it has been shown that it was made by two copyists. Although their names are unknown, one appears to be identical with the principal scribe of another manuscript, P containing the violin sonatas and partitas, BWV — , which places this part of the copy of the Partita in the first half of the s.
