David Chesky's Tribute To the Concerto Grosso Form!

Three-time Grammy nominee David Chesky has earned indisputable respect for his unique, eclectic musical compositions spanning both the jazz and classical idioms in addition to his prominence in the audiophile community for the development of new recording technologies.

David Chesky's Venetian Concertos are a tribute to the classical Concerto Grosso form. Cast in the style of the great works of Corelli and Vivaldi, these radically original compositions replace the Baroque line contour with dense chromatic polyphony, weaving a tapestry of interlocking grooves by turns Urban, Brazilian, and Latin inspired. The listener is left breathless by the sheer passion and energy of the writing. The Venetian concertos reflect a powerful new definition of the Orchestral Concerto form, one which embraces a more contemporary and relevant approach to counterpoint and energy.

Taking their lead from the Baroque and early classical traditions these radical and energetic ensemble concerti face the anachronistic collision of styles head on. Fusing the traditional allegro molto figuration of the Baroque genre the texture quickly becomes a battlefield as bass lines indicative of Funk, jazz and Urban music creep in as an underlying and ominous cantus firmus.

Chesky's fugal ideas contort, argue and continuously mutate. As the works progress the motivic and contrapuntal landscape becomes increasingly layered, complex, and psychedelic. The lines of the Baroque idiom become deliciously infected with melodic projectiles evocative of Bebop and twelve-one music. Strident rhythms aggressively interrupt the perpetual motion of the lines, deconstructing, fragmenting and finally creating a vocabulary all their own.

These four virtuoso tour de force concertos all build up to thrilling finales. The Baroque figuration becomes the servant of a primal rhythmic groove which transforms into poly-rhythms, cross rhythms and complex polyphonic equations. Compounded with these dramatic juxtapositions between chromatic, atonla, and Pan Diatonic harmonic vocabularies, Chesky's Venetian Concerto's create a new, fresh multi-dimensional musical landscape.
