MARTa - Variationen

Piano. Composed in 2005. Created on december 16, 2005 by Yu-Fen Chang at the MARTa museum, Herford, Germany. Commissioned by the MARTa museum. Published by LANTRO music, 20051173. Duration: 40m.

This work, ordered by the MARTa museum in Herford, is a challenge and, at the same time, a pamphlet. A challenge, as I was requested to write an approximately 40 min long piece for the piano solo, which is a rather unusual length; a pamphlet, as I was expected to respond to the intellectual comfort of the array of pianists who populate all the concert halls of the world and shower us with their inevitable Chopin preludes, Brahms intermezzos or complete Beethoven sonatas.
