Variations on a theme by C H, Op 57
EnglishFran็aisDeutsch
The Variationen über ein Thema von C.H. Op 57 of 1881 are the second of Scharwenka’s three sets of variations and are dedicated to Prince Constantin zu Hohenlohe se Schillingsfürst, who brother Chlodwig was Chancellor of Germany from 1894 to 1900. A close friend of Scharwenka, the Prince was a keen amateur composer and the sixteen-bar theme in A major was his own (as indicated by ‘C.H.’ in the title). The thirteen variations that follow are expertly developed, as one might expect.
