Tune of the Day: Adagio by J.S. Bach
The Sonata No. 1 in G minor, BWV 1001, is probably the most frequently played of Johann Sebastian Bach's Six Solos for violin without accompaniment, all composed in 1720. The Adagio that opens this sonata is a wildly embellished progression of harmonies. All the embellishments were written out quite carefully by the composer, resulting in a work that might sound improvised but is most definitely not.
Thanks to Gabriel for suggesting this piece!
