Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Ciaccona con canone for violin, orchestra and processed sounds (2007) belongs to so called “paradigmatic cycle”, a series of works related with Mihaela Vosganian’s intention of exhausting the reiteration of a matrix of some specific musical vocabulary and semantic elements. Besides of a first version of Un altra Ciaccona (violin solo) the composer have written as well Quasi un altra Ciaccona for violin and processed sounds. At the border of the tradition and contemporaneity, these works represent a hybrid genre between passagalia and ciaccona inspired by an Armenian traditional chant used for the first time by Mihaela Vosganian in Armenian Interferences (1995).
    The classic pattern of ciaccona (in a recurrent position, with the theme exposed at the end) is transforming itself during the 12 variations. The dialogue between the soloist and orchestra includes canonic procedures and the superposition of different syntactic layers, which interfere in some variations with the plane of processed sounds.
    The piece has been premiered in 2008 by the Bucharest National Radio Orchestra , soloist Adriana Winkler, conductor Cristian Brancusi and the recording has been edited on the Romanian Antology in 2011.
