Program Note:

 

Theme + 4 Brief Variants connect both the past and the present through a conjunction of form and tonality. Exploring extended techniques for the piano within a theme and variation form, each variant uses less and less material of the theme than the one before it; yet growing larger in duration. 

 

 

 

 

 

Theme + 4 Brief Variants was written for and premiered by Ken Chan - Anderson University, April 2010.
