Notes & Reviews:

The dance in triple time best known by its French name 'chaconne' spread from Spain and then to the rest of Europe. Its roots, however, are in South America. Based on a short repeated chord progression, the 'chacona' was among the most popular dances in 17th century Spain. Humorous and bawdy dances were accompanied by guitar, percussion and singing. The Italian composers made the 'ciaccona' chord progressions into a melody in the bass. These formal structures inspired the masters of the 17th and 18th centuries to surpass themselves not only in the realm of orchestral and operatic music, but in works for the harpsichord such as the ones played on this disc.
