Bach Chaconne in D minor...what note or chord starts the theme/does it shift keys
Bach Chaconne in D minor...what note or chord starts the theme/does it shift keys? I'm having hard times with it.
I use two tunings: what note or chord starts the theme in both
A = 415(Baroque)
A = 440(Contemporary)
The theme starts with the initial D chord in the first measure. The theme consists of the D, C#, B, and A in the first four measures.
Indeed the "theme" is in the bass line; but this does not imply accentuating it throughout the piece. Note how it starts on the second beat of each measure (more or less..)
It doesn't matter what tuning you use. D minor is D minor.
I would go further -- if you do have the music and you cannot see that the first chord is D minor then you are not ready for this piece, nor are you prepared to teach violin to anyone.
