Tune of the Day: Sarabande by J.S. Bach

from Cello Suite No. 4, transcribed for solo flute

This is the fourth movement from Johann Sebastian Bach's Cello Suite No. 4. This very peaceful Sarabande is quite obscure about the stressed second beat, which is the basic characteristic of the 3/4 dance, since, in this particular sarabande, almost every first beat contains a chord, whereas the second beat most often doesn't.
