Vehicles for Variation: Beloved Chaconnes for Strings and Organ
February 21, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$15 – $20
Everyone loves a Chaconne! A Chaconne is a type of musical composition used as a vehicle for variation on a repeated short harmonic progression. Its appeal lies in the tension between hypnotic repetition and ever-evolving variation. This program will include a Chaconne for organ by Buxtehude, for string quartet by Britten, for violin and organ by Vitali, and J. S. Bach’s famous Chaconne in D minor for solo violin. Jennifer Caine Provine, violin; Emilie Choi, violin; Alex Grimes, viola; Page Smith, cello; and Michael Kleinschmidt, organ.
