Variations : violin solo
by Stuart Greenbaum (2012)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
These variations for violin solo are taken from a larger work, Dance Music for Concert Halls. There is a form of 'dance music' in the classical tradition whose purpose does not require any dancing. And I often wonder what it means, therefore, to listen to dance music while sitting still. Of course, there's an inner dance that lifts and moves the spirit and I have always been attracted to music of any age or genre that does that. The variations theme is Balkan-influenced, in deference to Serbian violinist, Nemanja Radulovic, who gave the premiere performance at the Melbourne Recital Centre on 20 September 2012.The full work was commissioned by Andrew Johnston to celebrate the 80th birthday of his mother, Stephanie Lillian Johnston.
