Partita No 1 in B minor, BWV1002

composer
1720; Cöthen; Sei Solo a Violino senza Basso accompagnato Libro Primo; first published in 1802

 
Saint-Säens (1835-1921) brings a touch of French chic to Bach’s Gavotte (Tempo di Borea) from the Violin Partita No 1 in B minor, his vital and stylish transcription at the opposite pole to Bax’s final offering, the mighty Bach-Busoni Chaconne, a set of 29 variations on an eight bar theme taken form the D minor Partita for Solo Violin. Here, we return to virtuosity on the grandest scale and a reminder that for Busoni (1866-1924) the piano was the true King of Instruments.
