Ensemble Caprice - Chaconne / WCRB 'CD Of the Week'

Bookmark and Share

Under the direction of Matthias Maute, Ensemble Caprice explores a rich collection of chaconnes, passacaglias, and Folias from the Renaissance and baroque eras. Through works by Falconieri, Monteverdi, Bach, Maute, and more, the ensemble illustrates the limitless possibilities of these three compositional forms, all of which arise from variation, improvisation, and evolution of underlying musical lines.
