Programme Notes
This short piece comprises a theme, seven variations and a short coda, lasting in total about three minutes. The theme in itself is very simple, but the processes applied to it are increasingly complex. Finally it disappears into silence. This piece is an affectionate homage to Oliver Knussen on the occasion of his 50th birthday. Julian Anderson
