Bach-Busoni – Chaconne in D Minor – Grimaud, Piano

The Chaconne in D Minor from Johann Sebastian Bach is the fifth and last movement of its Partita No 2 in D minor for solo violin (BWV 1004), written between 1717 and 1720. It is a part of his compositional cycle called Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin. The Chaconne is written in the form of variations, and lasts approximately as long as the first four movements combined. Since Bach’s time, several transcriptions of the piece have been made for other instruments, particularly for the piano and for the piano left-hand (by Johannes Brahms and Géza Zichy). – Hélène Grimaud
