Variations on an Original Theme Op. 15 by : Henryk Wieniawski
The Variations on an Original Theme; Op. 15; were composed in 1854 and published the same year by Breitkopf and Hartel in Leipzig. Based on variation technique; the form of the composition is untypical. The subject with three variations (in the major) is preceded by an introduction in the minor with elements of a cadenza. This passage reappears after the variations and is followed by a finale in the form of a brilliant waltz ending in an effective coda. The Variations – like other compositions by Wieniawski – require freedom in chord and octave playing; skill in performing various types of staccato; brilliant passage-work and other virtuoso technique as well as purity of intonation when playing harmonics.
