Variations on a theme of Mozart
Là ci darem la mano, Don Giovanni

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Generally described as ‘the father of Russian music’, the Russian Mikhail Glinka (1804–1857) was of course the composer of much else besides harp music. These variations on a theme adapted from Mozart’s Don Giovanni (‘Là ci darem la mano’) are an early example of his work and were later transcribed by the composer for the piano.
