Johannes Kapsberger: Colascione (1604)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GaWz9sm5HA

Colascione composed by Klapsberger in 1604. This is very different from all music that I heard of that time before, and I love it 🙂 On Wikipedia: “Kapsberger’s writing is characterized, especially in toccatas, by spontaneous changes, sharp contrasts, unusual rhythmic groupings and, sometimes, passages that do not conform to the rules of counterpoint that were in use at the time.”
