Quick Overview

From the composer: “In the tradition of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s ‘Variations à travers les siècles,’ Astor Piazzolla’s ‘Histoire du Tango,’ and Dominick Argento’s ‘Letters rom Composers,’ I have taken a historical view of composition for my Variations on a Theme by Sor. This new set of variations follows Fernando Sor’s little Menuet in c minor op. 24 no. 1 as it makes its epic journey across time and space through the nineteenth century and into the early years of the twentieth century. During its travels, the theme meets and pays its respects to the godfathers of nineteenth century music, and as a result, is irrevocably transformed.” For advanced players.
