Violin Sonata no. 2 in Am, BWV 1003

Johann Sebastian Bach finished his Sonata for solo Violin in A minor, BWV 1003 in 1720. It was completed together with the rest of the Sonatas and partitas for solo Violin, a set of works that helped to establish the character and technical capabilities of the violin as a solo instrument. The whole set was published in 1802 by Simrock, and largely ignored until celebrated violinist Joseph Joachim started performing them, thus helping them become basic pieces in the solo violin repertoire. The Sonata for solo Violin, BWV 1003, is a work in four movements, and it was later transcribed for harpsichord by Bach himself, as BWV 964.
