Tune of the Day: Prelude by J.S. Bach
from Cello Suite No. 2
Here is the first movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Suite No. 2 in D minor for Unaccompanied Cello, BWV 1008. This Prelude consists of two parts, the first of which has a strong recurring theme that is immediately introduced in the beginning. The second part, on the other hand, is more scale-based, and leads to a sequence of five powerful chords.
