17 Variations on a theme of Scriabin

Dedicated to Marilyn Thompson 


The Scriabin Variations were started in 2007, revised and completed in 2016. 


A bleak piece of music. Inspired by the brevity and urgency of Beethoven's 32 Variations in c minor and the harmonic late romantic language of Alexander Scriabin.
