Tilman Hoppstock breaks down the musical complexities of J.S. Bach’s Sarabande BWV 995, originally written for cello and later transcribed for the lute.
After introducing the piece, Hoppstock pieces together the arpeggiated chords featured throughout the work and uses Buxtehude’s Sarabande BuxWV 235 to show this Baroque technique used in another way. Later, Hoppstock plays the different types of appoggiaturas and demonstrates how sometimes they don't start with the leading tone.
