Sarabande from piano Partita No. 6 in E minor BWV 830 by J.S. Bach.

Transcribed by Charlotte Bray.

Essentially sorrowful in nature, Bach’s Sarabande from piano Partita No. 6 in E minor appears to hold an elaborate and intimate conversation with the listener. Encompassing a whole range of emotions, the darkness is interrupted with glimpses of light and hopeful, joyous twists. In making an arrangement of something so immaculately beautiful, I tried to change it as little as possible. Staying true to the original in terms of pitch, I super imposed my own expression of the piece on to Bach’s composition, as if the ensemble were soloist.
