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.
