The original version of this music waswritten for piano in 3 hands (teacher and student).  I have orchestratedthis for a large symphony orchestra.  Equally important is participationof a child of 4-5 years old as a soloist, who will be playing on the piano themain theme of Tati-Tati at the beginning and at the end.

It all started as a musical joke from Borodin in a circle of hisfriends-composers: Rimsky-Korsakov, Cui and Lyadov. The joke turned into collectivework which resulted into 24 variations with the finale paraphrasing “Tati-Tati”.

I usually tell this story to the audiencebefore performing.

 “24 Variations with Finale” is ancomposition that is oriented for family and children symphonic concerts, whenthe educational part is of great importance for the  young listeners tounderstand classical music, the sound and characteristics of individual musicalinstruments and groups of the orchestra, what development principles are usedby each composer, etc.

 F. Liszt gave the best assessmentto this composition. He pointed out to how the composer’s skills of theabove named composers cold transform such insignificant musical theme-joke“Tati-Tati” into a brilliant and vibrant composition!

This is the first part of composition with a full name: Borodin, Cui, Lyadov, Rimsky-Korsakov - “PARAPHRASES” on an Unchanged Theme “Tati-Tati”,24 Variations with Finale and 9 Musical Pieces: Tarantella, Galop, Fugetta B-A-C-H, Waltz, Cortege, Lullaby, Marche Funebre, Requiem, Carillon, orchestrated by Arkady Leytush
