- For string ensemble with basso continuo and piccolo
- Duration 3:30 minutes
This original harpsichord piece was arranged for a baroque concert given by ensemble Domestica Rotterdam. It has been constructed in such a way that it would be possible for the ensemble to enter the stage walking i.e. the harpsichord starts the piece alone and the other players gradually join, playing while walking.
It was first played in this way 29 May 2009.
Of course it can also be played "normally".
N.B.The piccolo could be replaced by a sopranino recorder.
