If you exclude that passing high G that appears in the scale before the arpeggiando section, the highest note in the Chaconne is F#. This F# appears twice in quick succession. The first time is on the "and" of beat 3 in measure 158. Fractionally this beat occurs 5/6 of the way through the measure. If we turn this measure+beat into an irrational number we get 158.833333. There are 257 measures in the whole piece, so that relationship of that beat in the entire piece is 158.833333 / 257 = 0.618028533. The golden ratio is 1.61803398875, so either it's a coincidence, or Bach intentionally placed this note at virtually the exact interface of the major and minor golden sections.

Perhaps this is of interest: List of works designed with the golden ratio http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wo ... lden_ratio

Rob, thanks for the link. It seems slightly curious that Bach isn't
mentioned in the article, despite the golden ratio cropping up in
some guise or other in various of his famous works, including
the B minor Mass and the 48 P&Fs.

Then add to that page! I've added quite a few composer worklists myself to Wikipedia over the years.

I was drawn to this volume out of an interest in Litinsky's music. Litinsky was a significant composer for stringed instruments and played a significant role in as a theorist and teacher.
