Ensemble Caprice - Chaconne: Voices of Eternity

During the 17th and 18th centuries, composers across Europe gave their best to live up to the incredible challenge of transcending our perception of time. The great compositions by J.S. Bach, T.A. Vitali, A. Falconiero, T. Merula and J.F. Rebel feature different and spectacular ways to do so.
