This baroque church sonata, typically in four movements, clearly shows just how inventive J S Bach (1685-1750) was with a well-established musical form. It begins with an unusually slow moving bass line that allows for some incredible harmonic tensions throughout the movement. The whole work is brimming with melodic and rhythmic creativity.
