    Tsubasa Ariyoshi played Chaconne in D minor for solo viola, originally composed by Johann Sebastian Bach for solo violin (Partita No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1004), in a soulful manner. Her heartfelt performance struck my heart and I felt like she played better than Itzhak Perlman.

    BACH, J.S.: Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin, BWV 1001-1006


    Johann Sebastian BACH (1685–1750)
    Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin, BWV 1001-1006

    Sonata No. 1 in G minor, BWV 1001
    Partita No. 1 in B minor, BWV 1002
    Sonata No. 2 in A minor, BWV 1003
    Partita No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1004
    Sonata No. 3 in C major, BWV 1005
    Partita No. 3 in E major, BWV 1006

    The Partita in D minor, which ends with the monumental Chaconne, a use of the traditional Baroque dance-variation form that has attracted subsequent transcribers and arrangers, opens with the usual German dance, the Allemanda, followed by the customary Corrente, Sarabanda and Gigue, four movements that came to provide a traditional frame-work for the dance suite, here complete in itself, before the extended virtuosity of the great Chaconne.
