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

from Cello Suite No. 6, transcribed for solo flute

This Sarabande constitutes the fourth movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Suite No. 6 for unaccompanied cello. While the Sarabande of the fifth suite completely avoided chords, this piece is characterized by a constant presence of double, triple and quadruple stops, which are rendered as broken chords (arpeggios) on the flute.
