Widely considered one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century, American-born violinist and conductor Yehudi Menuhin and the Canadian pianist Glenn Gould, who became one of the best-known and most celebrated classical pianists of the 20th century, perform Johann Sebastian Bach’s Sonata No. 4 in C Minor for Violin and Harpsichord, BWV 1017. It is the fourth of Bach’s Six Sonatas for Violin and Harpsichord, BWV 1014–1019, probably compiled in Cöthen (1717–1723), and revived with a few modifications to the last two sonatas in Leipzig in the last decades of the composer’s life.
