“Theme and Variations”, for string orchestra (2005). The work is written especially for the composer’s final composition diploma and has been his second attempt to write a work in a large scale (the first was a cello concerto - fantasia). 
The theme, on which ten variations lead to the grandiose finale, is written by a composer’s good friend, Nikos Drelas. The strict polyphonic writing of the earlier serial works as well as the free homophonic style of the last almost tonic are here altogether in a almost progressive idiom. The programmatic nature of this composition coexists with the absolute musical sound form. Titles of variations like “Waltz funebre” or “Jazz Polka”, in an austere musical text give the point for a new direction in composer’s creative thinking. Parts of the work have been performed by Philothei - Psychico Youth Orchestra under the direction of the composer at Benetatou Cultural Center in October 2014.
