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

from Cello Suite No. 6, transcribed for solo flute

This extremely slow Allemande is the second movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's sixth Suite for solo cello. It is widely believed that this suite was composed specifically for a five-stringed violoncello piccolo, a smaller cello, capable of reaching very high notes.
