This set of six variations is based on a theme made only of chords. The theme is quiet, simple and doesn’t seem to have a clear sense of dramatic direction. Yet as the variations begin adding rhythms, melodies and textures, various musical styles, characters and dramatic expressions appear. In some variations, audience members might even forget that they are still hearing the same basic chords.
This piece was composed for the Hsing Tian choir of Kaohsiung. All of the choir members wanted to participate in the premiere performance, but not all of them are pianists. This meant that some of the parts had to be very easy to play. Also, in order to allow all members to play on a single piano, the piece is written so that almost any number of players can take turns performing it on either one, or two pianos.
A video of the premiere performance can be seen at this link:
