Johann Sebastian Bach’s Chaconne is a staple of violin repertoire. Many instrumentalists have adapted it and many arrangements now exist, ranging from simplistic to complex. This paper provides various insights on how to perform the Chaconne on marimba. Comparing different adaptations, as well as analyzing performances by excellent musicians, helps give direction to my own interpretation. The Chaconne is a challenging undertaking for any instrumentalist, but this paper will shed light on how to perform Bach’s great work successfully, on marimba.
