Huit Variations on an original theme, S148 Op 1
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Opus 1 Variations show a clever young hand at work, especially in the ease of the modulation at the coda from A flat major to E major—a key-shift which would dominate much of his mature work. Written no doubt for his own use and dedicated to the piano-craftsman Sébastien Erard, the work is also of interest because the theme turns up in the so-called Third Concerto
