Alchemy is the ultimate metamorphosis, a transformation of base metal into gold; and in music, repeating bass lines are the foundation of some of the most imaginative musical transformations both composed and improvised.

Improviso explores some of the most popular repeating ostinato – literally ‘obstinate’ – bass lines of the 17th and 18th centuries, presenting a varied programme of composed and improvised music by composers including Bertali, Leclair and JS Bach.
