 6 AM
with Angela Mariani
The Chaconne - This week on Harmonia, we're all about that bass - the chaconne, to be specific. From Peru to Paris and the street to the operatic stage, this harmonic-bass formula has had us singing, dancing, and strumming for more than four centuries. We'll trace the chaconne from its mythical island origins through many delightful variations as it passed from musician to musician. Plus, we're featuring La Centifola's and Leila Schayegh's 2023 Glossa release Ciaccona.
