Variations Suite
Composer: Wagner, Wolfram
Publisher: Doblinger
Instrumentation: Flute
Duration: 14'30''

In keeping with the ancient idea of combing the physical element of dance with the spiritual element of musical form in a sequence of elaborately composed dance movements, this suite of variations varies a prelude in a sequence of modern dances.

A certain proximity of the prelude to some of the Johann Sebastian Bach's suite movements will not stay hidden from the knowledgeable listener, especially its kinship with the a-minor partita for solo flute.  A challenge for the player is to make audible the inherent polyphony, which permeates all movements, and to resolve the form's stritness in emotionality and virtuosity of performance.
