About this Piece

Repetition as a compositional principle is not new. Variation form, canons, passacaglias - all of which iterate on a ground - have been around for centuries. Nicola Tescari takes a recording of a much favored chaconne by Italian Renaissance composer Tarquinio Merula as a starting point for his own spirited rhythmic explorations that develop the language of Steve Reich and William Duckworth.
