Violin Sonata in Bm, BWV 1014

It may be that the Sonatas BWV 1014-1019 were composed before the rest of Bach's sonatas, thus making them the first modern duo sonatas -in the sense that they have a full writte-out harpsichord part, raising this instrument from its mere continuo rol into an equal of the soloist. This particular work, BWV 1014, follows the usual sonata da chiesa form, and in that frame it explores many forms.
