FEB. 21, 2017 | WAYNE SIEGEL: CHACONNE (2016) CONCERTO FOR GUITAR AND CHAMBER ORCHESTRA - WORLD PREMIERE IN COPENHAGEN
Chaconne (2016) for Guitar and Chamber Orchestra by the Danish-American composer Wayne Siegel was premiered by Jakob Bangsø and the DiamantEnsemblet on February 21st 2017 at the Black Diamond (the Royal Library) in Copenhagen. The premiere was broadcast on Danish Radio P2 - LISTEN HERE.
An excerpt from Siegel's programme note reads:


"My guitar concerto is composed in single movement and, except
in the very beginning, the piece is constructed as a strict chaconne.
The piece opens with the soloist searching his memory, trying to recall
a forgotten melody. Once he has “remembered” the 10-bar melody,
it is repeated consistently and regularly as a ground bass with changing
instrumentation and varying textures during the entire piece.
(...)
Chaconne was composed for and in close collaboration with
the guitarist Jakob Bangsø, with generous support from
the Royal Library in Copenhagen and the Danish Arts Foundation."
