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

from Cello Suite No. 3, transcribed for solo flute

The Sarabande from Johann Sebastian Bach's third Suite for unaccompanied cello is characterized by a series of triple and quadruple stops, which are rendered as broken chords in the present transcription. These arpeggios offer the player plenty of room for gutsy expressiveness, and at the same time outline the implied polyphony that so fascinates those who hear these works.
