Web Variations

for piano

Premiered by the composer, March 3rd, 2008, USC United University Church, Los Angeles, CA



As the name obliquely hints at, Web Variations is a set of variations based on the second movement of Anton Webern’s Variations for Piano, op. 27 (“Sehr schnell”). While the pitch content is identical to the original, the rhythms, registers, and textures are radically different in each variation, creating new stylistic and affective contexts for Webern’s crystalline material.
