    That was lovely; the perfect antidote to a damp, miserable English morning.

    Amazing playing. It would take me decades to do something like that.

    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!

    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.

    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."
