Tune of the Day: Gigue by Bach

from Partita in E major for solo violin

This gigue is the sixth and final movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Partita No. 3 for Violin, BWV 1006, which he composed in 1720. In order to fit the range of the flute, we have transposed the piece from E major to A major.

Thanks to Emee for suggesting this piece!
