Formerly published by Schott as Edition 10845, this set of variations is based on an eight note tonal theme, deliberately not atonal! Each variation uses a different interval of the scale, e.g. Seconds, Thirds, Forths etc., The piece ends with a short Fughetta and a lively Finale in Calypso style.
The audio below consists of sampled sounds to give an idea of each movement.
