Adagio from J.S. Bach Concerto in D minor BWV 974 #4

I’ve modified some of the scales used in each measure to minimize wolf fifths where possible with the four scales I’m using. I think I can go further, but at this stage it has an interesting edge to it. I had been choosing scales by listening to all of them in a row, but this time I used Excel spreadsheet to reduce the wolf fifths, and choose the right major and minor thirds. There are still some loopy notes, but I think I can fix that by using more than one scale in a measure. At least that’s my intent for the next iteration. You can read more about the progress of this piece here, and here.
