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

from Cello Suite No. 5, transcribed for solo flute

This 3/2-time courante constitutes the third movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's fifth Suite for Unaccompanied Cello. It is exceptional as it is a courante in the French style, rather than in the Italian form found in the other five cello suites.
