Ruminations on fiddling in a powdered wig....

Monday, October 11, 2010

  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...

here -,_BWV_1001-1006_(Bach,_Johann_Sebastian)

or here it is mixed in with the rest of Bach's collected works -
