Tune of the Day: Allemande by J.S. Bach
from Partita in D minor for solo violin, arranged for solo flute
Johann Sebastian Bach wrote his Partita in D minor for solo violin, BWV 1004, during the period 1717–1723, probably in memory of his first wife Maria Barbara. The partita opens with an earnest Allemande unexpectedly free of complex chords, which sounds very good when played on the flute.
Thanks to Gabriel for suggesting this piece!
