The partita is the world. The world is the partita. The twelve-minute Chaconne is an entire book, the gospel of the violin. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. In the beginning was the Partita, and the Partita was with God, and the Partita was God. I feel as if on the edge of greatness, on the edge of uncovering the power, the perfection hidden in the twelve-minute Chaconne. Surely, if I understand it, if I play it as he means me to, a new world will open to me.
