Chaconne for Solo Flute, BWV1004
"Not just one of the greatest pieces of music ever written, but one of the greatest achievements of any man in history. It's a spiritually powerful piece, emotionally powerful, structurally perfect."
- Joshua Bell, violinist
This Chaconne has been masterfully transcribed for solo flute by the recently retired Seattle Symphony principal flutist, Scott Goff. A virtuosic work challenging in both technique and interpretation, taken from Bach's Second Violin Partita in D minor. Though transposed into a more suitable key, if this transcription is play on an alto flute, it will sound in the same key as the original work.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
