Notes and Editorial Reviews

In sixteenth and seventeenth century Italy the use of solo bass instruments was becoming ever more popular. Besides Fantasias and Canzonas, dances with ostinato bass figures were particularly favoured: Chaconnes, Passacailles, Bergamascas and Ruggieros were considered hypnotic and seductive. Played on bass instruments, these dances, with their forward-driving ostinatos, even today provide a very special listening experience.
