For his new Signum Classics album, Hugo Ticciati and his ensemble O/Modernt have explored the ground, or chaconne, down the years. Joined by musicians from many different genres, as well as two actors, 'From the Ground Up: Chaconnes' contains two much-loved works built over a repeating bassline, JS Bach's great violin Chaconne from the D minor solo Partita and Dido's Lament from Purcell's opera (in a thrilling remix). James Jolly caught up with Hugo Ticciati when O/Modernt were in London recently to talk about the album.
