Solo Violin Sonata No. 2 in A Minor - J. S. Bach, BWV 1003

For Solo (instrumental or vocal part)

Uploaded on Jun 4, 2019

Johann Sebastian Bach's violin sonatas each follow the form of the Corellian sonata da chiesa: a slow prelude, a quicker fugal movement, another slow, lyrical movement, and lastly a fast finale, which in the violin sonatas is a perpetuum mobile. Bach performed the impossible with his unaccompanied works, writing dense counterpoint and fugal passages on a four-stringed, monophonic instrument. The second violin sonata is especially remarkable for its third movement, in which the soloist performs a calm aria while providing a pulsing bass line simultaneously.

I. Grave
II. Fuga
III. Andante
IV. Allegro

Constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!
