3. J. S. Bach  Chaconne from Partita No. 2 in d minor BWV 1004 for Solo Violin (1720) 15:53

Julia Fischer, Violin(Due to the MP3 format, there is some unavoidable distortion that occurs in the Julia Fischer recording)* If I were to present this complete  program ‘live’ in a conventional recital hall, I would be tempted to add a theatrical touch: during the first Chaconne (Holland), the violinist who plays the final Chaconne (Bach) would sit on a chair (down-center) facing the side wall (stage left), showing their profile. The player would look straight ahead throughout, with hands folded in lap. An open violin case containing the violin would be on display (perhaps on top of a piano bench) near the player.
