Contrasting movement to Bach Adagio(Sonata no.1)?

November 16, 2017, 6:26 AM · I decided on doing the Bach Adagio but for one college that I plan on auditioning for requires a contrasting movement and I was wondering what would be a good piece. (My audition for this college is on March 17)

What is your teacher recommending? I'm assuming that it needs to be a movement that you already know -- which ones do you know?
