Tune of the Day: Double by J.S. Bach
from Violin partita in B minor
Johann Sebastian Bach composed the Partita No. 1 in B minor for solo violin, BWV 1002, in 1720. What we present today is a transcription for solo flute of the sixth movement of this Partita, a double that elaborates on the preceding sarabande. In order to fit the range of the flute, the piece has been transposed from B minor to E minor.
