Is 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.

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

Ohhh, I didn't know the Busoni version. It's wonderful too.
