Book Title: Passacaglia (sheet music)

Author: Heinrich von Biber

Book Description:

This is an urtext edition of a 17th century musical composition, originally written for solo violin, and here transcribed for solo viola. The work is basically a series of variations on a recurring two measure theme. Although I have chosen it for its value as an excellent pedagogical resource, it is also a beautiful work of art in its own right.
