Tune of the Day: Ciaccona by Schmelzer

transcribed for flute and bass instrument

Austrian violinist and composer Johann Heinrich Schmelzer probably wrote his Ciaccona in A major for Violin in the spring of 1669. Schmelzer was one of the most important violinists of the period, and one of the most influential composers of instrumental music of the 17th century.

Thanks to Marcello from Italy for suggesting this piece!
