“Chaconne at home for 14 violinists”

One of the silver linings of social distancing is that it has led many musicians to find creative ways to play “together,” and that creativity has led to many beautiful creations.  This “Chaconne at home for 14 violinists” is one of said creations.  The Chaconne from Bach’s Partita No. 2 for solo violin is perhaps the single most difficult movement from any of Bach’s 6 Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin, and one of the wonderful things about this particular rendition is that the change between violinists helps make it clear where the different variations within the movement lie.  Plus, it’s a delight to get to see so many different approaches to the violin and to the Chaconne itself!
