from Partita in D minor for solo violin, arranged for solo flute

Here is the fourth of the five movements of Johann Sebastian Bach's Partita in D minor for solo violin, BWV 1004. This is a fast-paced giga (or gigue, using the French spelling, although that's not exactly the same thing) in 12/8 time.
