Passamezzo antiquo


Recommended Posts

A short piece taking a very old progression.

I had to look up what a passamezzo is.  Really cool effect you produce here!  I think it sounds like a lumbering old man in character - I guess it's meant to be an old Italian dance.  It sounds heavy, but I think you balance the heavy sections nicely with lighter interludes.  I think though that if you removed the heavy portions, it just wouldn't be the same piece anymore - the heavy parts almost seem like they're the whole point of the piece.  It brings to mind heavy stomping from a fat old man with a cane LoL.  Thanks for sharing.

Am interesting piece. Short enough that it could be a dance, at one moment ponderous, heavy, the next letting light and air in (if that makes sense). I can imagine it in a ballet where a ponderous character appears alongside another far lighter. It might also preface a festive event. Scoring and balance are every bit up to your usual quality.

Thank you for a pleasant listen.
