Tariq Harb performs his arrangement of the 4th movement, Tempo di Borea, from Partita No.1, BWV 1002 for solo violin by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). This comes via Harb’s fantastic YouTube Channel. His arrangement is available to purchase here. Nice and crisp rhythmic accentuations all wrapped in excellent phrasing. It’s been awhile since I’ve featured Harb but looking forward to posting more of his great playing along with a new quality in his video, lighting, and sound. Below is an excerpt from his YouTube description:
The Partita No. 1 in B minor BWV 1002 by Johann Sebastian Bach, is a piece for solo violin composed by 1720. This partita is formed in the traditional way that consists of an allemande, a courante, sarabande and gigue in the baroque style, except that this work substitutes a bourrée (marked Tempo di Borea) for the more typical gigue. Also, each movement is followed by a variation called double in French, which elaborates on the chords of the prior movement. I will be recording the double of this movement as well in the coming weeks.
Beautifully done. I look forward to listening to more of Tariq’s work.
