Commissioned by Piano & Keyboard magazine, Amlin's Eight Variations is a charming 5-minute piece designed to be within reach of intermediate pianists. The work begins with a fascinating chorale in true Amlin style - a study in major-seventh chords in varied inversions and everchanging harmony. The result is a theme that is at once beautiful, fresh, and always moving forward. Seven characteristic variations follow, subjecting the original chord progression through the guises of a Habanera, a Bach-style invention, and further treats. Andrew Willis has recorded Eight Variations for Albany Records, on a CD also including the Five Preludes, Sonata No. 6, and Sonata No. 7.
