MEDITATION ON THE NAME BACH is an alluring 4-minute work, perfectly described by its title. The piece begins with Bb-A-C-B natural, which is the musical transliteration of B-A-C-H in German-language note spelling. The composition is a meditative exploration of the B-A-C-H pattern through other keys, resolving peacefully to open strings in the final measures.
