Johann Sebastian Bach died on 28 July 1750. His legacy faded and his music was cast into oblivion, but it refused to disappear. Like a restorer, Brahms reconstructed his famous “Chaconne” for violin for the left hand of the piano. Just like a new Schliemann, Casals dug into Bach’s legacy and revived the Solo Cello Suites, whose shadow was cast over Cassadó’s work. Meanwhile, the spectre of Bach became obsessive and was filtered through in Ysaÿe’s Violin Sonata no. 2.
