Program Notes

The Variations on a Nursery Tune, Op. 25, is a piece for piano and orchestra by Ernő Dohnányi. It is subtitled "For the enjoyment of humorous people and for the annoyance of others."

Written in 1914, it captures the spirit of Romanticism, and manages to delight and enthrall in its sparkling piano writing and lush orchestral textures, and its wit in the treatment of the theme – the French nursery song Ah, vous dirai-je, Maman, otherwise known as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Like Dohnányi, Mozart also wrote variations on this nursery tune (K. 265/300e).
