Notes on this piece
Add to a playlist

This piece is entirely based on the rondeau Ma fin est mon commencement by Guillaume de Machaut.

It might be described as a form of palimpsest. The eight sections in which it is divided correspond to the eight parts that structure Machaut’s work (and, by extension, the typical rondeau as a medieval chanson form). Each section is the result of a different process of filtering, so that some of the pitches from Ma fin... are suppressed while others remain intact: the preserved notes are usually located in the exact same place where they do in the original source, although the individual durations may be altered. This allows the deployment of melodic and harmonic configurations that remain somehow ‘hidden’ within the original. Further elaborations affect parameters such as dynamics, articulations, tempi, etc.

The title refers both to the classical double as a variation form, and to the fact that each performer acts as a double of the other.
