Bach/Busoni   Chaconne
Mozart            Variations on “Ah, vous dirai-je, Maman”
Impromptu No. 3, op. 142, D. 935
Brahms           Variations on a theme by Paganini, Book 1

Kazakh pianist Dina makes a welcome return to our series with four timeless sets of variations. Based on a simple violin theme, Bach’s epic Chaconne was transformed into this brilliant showpiece by Italian composer Feruccio Busoni in 1916. Also creating a dazzling display from simple elements are Mozart’s delightful variations on ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’. Schubert’s dramatic variations on his ‘Rosamunde’ theme build tension by appearing to rush towards the finale. Dina ends with Brahms’s variations on the famous Caprice by Paganini. With rich invention and startling originality, Clara Schumann referred to them as ‘witches’ variations’.

Ticket price includes tea, coffee and cake before or after the concert.
