Ensemble Caprice - Chaconne: Voices of Eternity
The Baroque chaconne, with its steady harmonic progression, has been associated with the concept 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.
