An original composition for string quartet long in the making, Variations on a Baroque Theme takes a melody I composed way back in high school in 2014, and turns it into seven unique variations, using both the standard toolbox of musical development tools (inversion, retrograde, fragmentation, tempo) and different styles and genres (Latin 5/4, Russian canon, cinematic march).
Variation I: Vivace
Variation II: Minor
Variation III: Inversion
Variation IV: Minor Inversion
Variation V: Latin
Variation VI: Russian Canon/Lament
Variation VII: Cinematic March
