The opening of this sonata in D minor, performed by Matthias Havinga for All of Bach, has an uncertain and emphatically andante sound. To the ears of seventeenth and eighteenth-century musicologists the key of D minor represented melancholy, devotion, solemnity and seriousness. Following this tentative start, Bach launches into experimentation, by juggling motifs almost wildly and searching for new keys.
Recorded for the project All of Bach on September 21st 2016 at the Sint-Bavokerk, Haarlem.

The renowned Vienna Chamber Orchestra was performing in Turkey last week, but it was a dog who stole the show.
I liked the way the pup settled down next to First Violin. Dog knows his orchestras!
