Throughout the baroque era, chaconnes with their steady harmonic progression have been associated with the concept of eternity. During the 17th and 18th centuries, composers from various European countries have given their best to live up to the incredible challenge of going beyond the limits of our perception of time. The great compositions by J.S. Bach, T.A. Vitali, A. Falconiero, T. Merulaand J.F. Rebel feature different and spectacular ways to do so.
