Today’s video is on the Minuets from the d minor Suite, and because it’s the biggest shopping day of the year, Bach is offering a great deal on chords. As we’ve seen, once Bach got an idea in his head, he used it for all it was worth, and this movement has more double and triple stops than the entire first Suite (and before you say anything, fellow music nerds, yes, I counted.)
The very first chord will sound especially familiar – watch the video to see yet another example of Bach stealing his own material! And if you’re tired of shopping and want to support a good cause, please click the button below the video to make a donation to the 4-Way String Project. Thanks, and I’ll see you for #GivingTuesday with the Gigue!
