J S Bach - Prelude for Three Violas

You might know this as the prelude to Bach's fourth cello suite. Who am I to query Bach, and I'm sure he knew exactly what he was doing, but in it's original form it does look rather like keyboard writing, not easy on a stringed instrument? However, in this trio version Sancho has highlighted the fascinating harmony and counterpoint that is hidden within the music. It begins very simply, but gradually things become more complex. 4 mins. M
