Suite for Lute BWV 1006a is actually a transcript of n. 3 Violin Partita by Bach. It was written in 1720 and consists of seven movements, the first of which is the Prelude. The writing is mainly in arpeggio form, with two entries, one of which is the melody and the other forms an harmonic pedal. In some places the voices become three, and it is not easy, as the rhythm is quite tight. John Williams gives us another demonstration of his mastery with this clean and clear execution.
