Kanahi Yamashita Plays the Chaconne BWV1004 by Bach

Kanahi Yamashita plays the Chaconne from Violin Partita No.2, BWV1004 by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). This comes via her YouTube channel. Since her childhood in Nagasaki, Japan, Kanahi Yamashita was a member of the amazing Yamashita Family Quintet. I had the pleasure of meeting both Kazuhito and Kanahi Yamashita a few years back when I hosted his masterclass in Victoria. An amazing young player with an outstanding combination of musicality and technique. Her balanced approach here is patient until she pulls off some outrageously smooth, fast, yet still musical variations. I have no words to describe her musicality and virtuosity.
