Bach Transcription ("Grave") by Léon Guller, need more info

February 22, 2021, 4:22 AM · Hi everyone,

The great violinist Ricardo Odnoposoff used to play a "Grave" in his recitals, a transcription of a J.S. Bach work made by the Belgian violinist and conductor Léon Guller.

However, I've not been able to determine exactly which Bach work. I've read references to one of the English Suites, or the Grave from the Partita in C minor BWV 826.

Hoping someone out there can identify it definitively and perhaps share a copy. Thank you.

Best wishes, Joe
