dc.description.abstractAbstract As one of the most important solo pieces in the violin repertoire, the Chaconne has inspired and tested numerous violinists on the road to violin mastery. It is not only the longest single movement of the unaccompanied violin works by J. S. Bach, but it also presents a variety of technical and musical challenges. Each section of the Chaconne varies in the required bowing and fingering techniques. This document will focus on intonation, string crossings, chords, memorization, and dynamics. This study focuses on helping violinists to find solutions for technical challenges when playing the Chaconne. I have collected ideas and suggestions from scholars and performers and combined them with my own insight as a violinist to write this document. I am hoping to provide a unique view for those who wish to comprehend and successfully perform the piece. Wei-yu Chang Lawrence, Kansas April 2019
