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

from Sonata in G minor for solo violin, transcribed for solo flute

Here is the fourth and last movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Sonata No. 1 in G minor, BWV 1001. This Presto finale is a sort of “moto perpetuo” (that is, a piece characterized by a continuous, steady stream of notes) in binary form.

Thanks to Gabriel for suggesting this piece!
