  • OMP106 Lance Eccles An Evening of Chaconnes

    Composed for the Sydney Society of Recorder Players this collection of ten chaconnes displays a good variety of characters in recorder-friendly keys well suited to an adult ensemble.  Typical features of the chaconne bass are here with the falling tetrachord (No. 4), a passamezzo moderno (No. 5) and the Bachian falling chromatic line of No. 10, all of which break out occasionally from their repetitiveness with a quaver flourish or a chromatic turn.  No interpretation is given which leaves plenty of scope for imaginative articulation.  These are straightforward player-friendly pieces, easy on the ear and the fingers with interest spread throughout the parts although a bass player with considerable patience will be an asset.

Orpheus Music's legacy of keeping Australian music relevant to the musical history of Australia and part of the recorder repertoire is something we are deeply passionate about.
