Great example of Ostinato. It means “Stubborn” (Obstinate). It’s one of my favorite things to do on a piano. It can get repetitive, annoying, as it hammers away over and over, changing while still the same, or it can be mathematically rhythmic, hypnotic, alluring. There’s one particular piece I made up as a kid that’s still my favorite and I always end up playing it with variations and it’s got a strong Ostinato. From: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Ostinato-Etude/ “In music, an ostinato (derived from Italian: “stubborn”, compare English: obstinate) is a motif or phrase which is persistently repeated in the same musical voice. An ostinato is always a succession of equal sounds, wherein each note always has the same weight or stress. The repeating idea may be a rhythmic pattern, part of a tune, or a complete melody in itself” Ostinato Etude by Piotr Kaczor

There’s one particular piece I made up as a kid on the piano that’s still my favorite and I always end up playing it with variations and it’s got a strong Ostinato. I’ll post it one day.

Are you ever stubborn, obstinate, repetitive, hammering away until you achieve your goal?
