Recercada primeira


for bass clarinet and viola da gamba
Duration: 8’00
Year: 2016

The work refers to the famous "Recercade" (i.e., "research") of the Spanish Gamba virtuoso Diego Ortiz (1510-1570), who published a book in Rome in 1553 on the practice of improvisation at the time of the Italian Renaissance. Following the model of Ortiz, the "Recercada primeira" is also built up on a 2 times 8-bar harmonic "Ground", over which one improvises. In order to distinguish the work from its famous model, the “Recercada primera”, I chose the Portuguese spelling “primeira ”.
