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

from Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor

Johann Sebastian Bach's Suite for Orchestra No. 2 in B minor is generally regarded as a vibrant and fast-paced work, but it also features a slow third movement. This movement is a sarabande, one of the most popular slow dances of the Baroque era. Remember that this stately triple-time dance of Spanish origin is usually played with an accent on the second beat of each bar.
