I have been "regressing" lately to my classical roots, listening to Rachael Podger's absolutely flawless recording of Bach's Partitas and Sonatas for Solo Violin (vol 2, Partita No.2 and Sonata No. 2 and 3). I had found a Galamian reprint of the original manuscripts several years ago in a used book store and picked it up for a bargain $5. I love to listen and follow along, but the couple times I have made the attempt to play (one of the slower pieces, of course) I am left "noteless". I would love to be able to play the third movement (Largo) from Sonata No. 3 - it has the most perfect ending for a piece ever written, in my opinion. If anyone is brave, you can download the scores on-line for free at a couple different places...

or here it is mixed in with the rest of Bach's collected works - http://icking-music-archive.org/ByComposer/J.S.Bach.php
