The chaconne had made it: from the casual frivolous street dance of Latin America to the perfumed salons and opera houses of old Europe! Performers and listeners sweated there, too, of course; be it because of the enormous technical demands made on them by the variations over the ostinato bass model, which increased to the grotesque, or because of the considerable waste heat from the candlelight. In the 17th century, an extended chaconne (or ital.: ciaccona) usually formed the weighty capstone of every larger instrumental collection and even more so of every French opera. Even if the Swiss violinist Leila Schayegh in concert with her ensemble La Centifolia naturally cannot touch all stations of this ascent of the chaconne, the audience can expect a representative cross-section of its occurrence in Italian, English and German instrumental music of the Baroque. By the way, the ensemble's name proves to be particularly grateful: »La Centifolia« (»the hundred-petaled one«) is the name of a rose variety cultivated from the end of the 16th century, in whose beguiling fragrance the whole fabulous history of the Ciaccona resonates.
