Quarantine Practice, Ep. 9 - Preludio from J.S. Bach's Partita no. 3


Playing with a bit of abandon - relearning the Preludio from J. S. Bach’s Partita no. 3 for solo violin after many years away from it. The prelude’s endless, crystalline energy seems to reverberate in a chamber lined with glass walls - that’s what comes into my mind. Some feelings of high brilliancy and splendor seems timely at this moment...

The prelude establishes the key of E major, and is an example of perpetual motion (at one of its finest in my opinion!), characterized by unpredictable emphases and phrasing. Also derived some inspiration from @christhile’s rendition of it on the mandolin!

Work in progress, as always - with rhythmic integrity...
