Chaconne in G minor

Description

Tomaso Antonio Vitali (1663 – 1745) was an Italian composer and violinist from Bologna, the eldest son of Giovanni Battista Vitali.

He is known mainly for this famous Chaconne in G minor, written originally for violin and continuo. It was published from a manuscript in the Sachsische Landebibliothek in Dresden in Die Hoch Schule des Violinspiels (1867) edited by German violinist Ferdinand David.

The work’s wide-ranging modulations into distant keys have raised speculation that it could not be a genuine baroque work!
