Bach Book for Violin

Bach Book for Violin

This new collection is suitable for intermediate to advanced standard violinists (approx. Grades 4–7). It includes a varied selection of pieces drawn from across Bach’s output, including lively dances, spirited allegros, expressive slow movements, and arrangements of the well-known chorale melodies Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring and Wachet auf. There are two pieces for unaccompanied violin, including the solo Gigue from the Partita in E major, and a sonata movement that can be played as a solo or duet with piano.

Audio files of the piano accompaniments and performances of a selection of pieces will be available to download free from this website. So too will cello parts for six of the pieces, offering additional performance options.
