Tune of the Day: Allemande

from J.S. Bach's Partita in A minor for solo flute

The opening allemande is the lengthiest of the four movements of Johann Sebastian Bach's Partita in A minor for solo Flute. This movement shows frequent leaps from one register to another, as Bach engages to make melodically plain the implied harmonic voices around which the music is written. In each half, the approach to the cadence is made via some interesting chromatically descending miniature arpeggios.

With this post we now have all the four movements of the Partita in A minor: Allemande, Corrente, Sarabande, Bourrée angloise.
