Stylianos Dimou
Variations on A. Dvorak’s theme

The Variations project, for flute and piano, is a set of five variations (+ coda) on a subject which draws its phrasal character and a form of processed tone material from a motivic and melodical reference to a work of A. Dvořák.
“My goal through this project, was the constant transformation and processing of the original theme through procedures timbral, rhythmic and harmonic exploration. In addition, I tried to give a sense of a continuous renegotiation of musical elements that both are developing and changing gradually and also outlines a homogeneous macrostructural context” says the composer.
