Ciaccona, BWV1004


  • Worth the high price tag

Staff Pick

“Difficult Bach!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - chrish@justflutes.com

There are many good arrangements of works by JS Bach and this is one of the best. More difficult than usual in this genre, the chaconne theme is subjected to a great amount of variation, some of it very fragmentary. This results in a challenge of ensemble playing that is taxing but also extremely rewarding. Expensive but very worthwhile!

Our Description

Ciaccona, the fifth and last movement of the Second Partita in D minor, BWV 1004 for violin solo by Johann Sebastian Bach, is in this arrangement scored for three concert flutes and one alto flute.
