Notes on the Bach Chaconne

The extraordinary Chaconne exists as the fifth movement in an autograph Partita for solo violin, dating from 1720. The scope of the work, and its homophonic style, has interested later composers, including Busoni, to arrange the music for piano. Like some other early works of Bach, it is often Romantic and chromatic.
