Ciaccona a 7


An instrumental divertissement comes in the form of Czech composer and priest Philipp Jakob Rittler’s charming Ciaccona. Growing from a simple ground bass that circles gently in continuo instruments, the work expands outwards, adding ever thicker and more exuberant instrumental embellishments from trumpet and strings, to turn a graceful dance into an ecstatic musical celebration, before reversing the process and dying away to nothing.
