Bach, Johann Sebastian: Practising score of Ciaccona

BWV 1004

Edited by Dukay Barnabás, Ábrahám Márta
Setting: Violin
Language: Hungarian, English
Length: 16 pages
Publisher: BioBach-Music
Item number: BB99
ISMN: 9897801666994
The publication of this practising score is the result of the desire to provide violinists with a score which gives a clear insight into the structure of the Ciaccona, and the construction of the large form which results from this structure. The score is based on the autograph and the urtext edition.

The piece consists of 64 sections of four bars, and we have regarded the sections as variations. The variations appear in formal units consisting of one, two or three variations. There are: 5 single variations, 25 double variations, 3 triple variations, altogether 33 formal units. The two parts containing arpeggios (23-31. and 51-52.) are published in a written out form. Our approach dispenses with tradition and is rooted in a consideration of the work as a whole. In the case of the variations with arpeggios we took into account the changes in the number of voices and the situation of the rhythmic span of the overall form.
