os-ti-nah-toh; Italian aws-tee-nah-taw
noun, plural ostinatos. Music.

“a constantly recurring melodic fragment”

I thought ostinati sounded a bit more pretentious…….

Not only do we have a single ostinato melody going; we have three!

In addition to that marvelous achievement, we have implemented a technique usually given to fugal compositions; stretto.

And, if that weren’t enough, we have matched an original ostinato melody with an inversion of the ostinato melody in contrary motion against the second ostinato figure in augmentation……

In other words, “Who cares”!
