three versions of a bouree

bouree is not actually a song it is a style of music denoted by the song beginning on the last beat of a bar.  all three of the following are examples of j.s. bach.

the first version of bouree to grace your eardrums is Mstislav Rostropovich playing Bach´s Suite for Solo Cello in C Major.  Paris, December 1962. this is what was intended of the song by the composer.

add a little acid and a lot of weed to some brits.  jethro tull’s version follows.

now there is a fine line between metal and classical.  yngwei malmsteen blurs that line.
