One of the most famous passacaglias of all time, Bach's masterpiece will blow your mind!
I've played it during our Bach's 333rd birthday recital at Vilnius University St John's church last Saturday.
Listen to BWV 582 here
I played it from this score
Towards the end of the fugue, I decided I will improvise a short cadenza where the Frygian sixth chord with fermata is (around 14:00). Notice how I almost missed the re-entry of the music and had a hard time to come back from improvisation.
Let me know what your thoughts were while listening to this piece.
