Is the Bach's Chaconne the best piece for violin solo ever written?
October 4, 2012 at 2:54 PMIs the Bach's Chaconne the best piece for violin solo ever written? I think so. I never get tired of listening.
And I never get tired of (try) playing it.
And I love the Gidon Kremer version.
From Scott SlapinYes! Yes it is.

From Marc ButterlinI like this version, but Milstein's take on it is still my favourite.
