A while ago I posted a transcription by Arno Rog of the Siciliano from the flute sonata, BWV 1031 (
Today I made a transcription myself, of the Siciliano from the Violin Sonata, BWV 1017. Unlike BWV 1031, this transcription is not note-perfect. The bassline is just the lowest note of the original, omitting the rest of the broken chords. The right hand part of the harpsichord part has become the left hand part in this transcription. But to make it somewhat easier to play and to fill in some of the missing notes of the original left hand part I changed some notes here and there. The purist will of course abhor what I did, but I think the result is rather nice.

I played it on the demo-version of the Goerlitz sample set.
