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

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

This gentle Siciliano in B-flat major is the third movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Sonata in G minor for unaccompanied violin. Ornamentation was fully written out by the composer himself, as was often the case with slow movements in the late Baroque period.
