It's one of the most captivating pieces of music ever written and he plays it really well. Thanks for posting it!
That was lovely; the perfect antidote to a damp, miserable English morning.
Amazing playing. It would take me decades to do something like that.
Excellent, tks. for posting!
Here's a version I really like. It may be the Karl Scheit arrangement, but I'm not sure.
This young woman, Olivia Chaing, was only 15 years old when she recorded this! Amazing!
Best I’ve ever heard
After watching these 2 ladies I want to shoot my hand!
Here's a baroque guitar and lute duet.
yeah I like the sound of older instruments but also like this guy (who also plays the Chaconne from BWV 1004.)
Alonso Mudarra's Fantasía X played on a vihuela.
Today's listening... thanks everyone! This disk is fantastic and contains the Chaconne:
Some more vihuela music.
A little archlute for ya.
I'm a big fan of the Bach Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin. The Chaconne is one of my favorite pieces of music. I regularly listen to the Perlman and the Hahn versions. The Heifetz, not as much. Perlman's is dynamic and powerful, while Hahn's is very smooth. I couldn't find a live performance of the Chaconne, but here's another one of the Sonatas.
I've admired the hell out of this guy for years.
Oh, and the take from Johannes Brahms, on the Chaconne.
"On one stave, for a small instrument, the man writes a whole world of the deepest thoughts and most powerful feelings. If I imagined that I could have created, even conceived the piece, I am quite certain that the excess of excitement and earth-shattering experience would have driven me out of my mind."
