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

from Cello Suite No. 1 in G major

This gigue is the piece that concludes Bach's Suite No. 1 for Unaccompanied Cello, BWV 1007. The gigue (also called giga or jig, even if these terms are generally only used for its Italian and British counterparts, respectively) was a lively dance, usually in 6/8 time or some other compound time. It was the most common form for the last movement of a Baroque suite.

Thanks to Luis for suggesting this piece!
