Program Notes

The grandeur and beauty of Joyful Variations takes the listener on a journey through one of the most famous melodies ever written---Beethoven’s theme from Symphony No. 9. Noble fanfares open and close these variations, set in ternary form, while sweeping renditions of the theme provide color and lyricism in a contrasting Adagio section.
