Product Description

These variations are a dual-tribute to the great composer of old, J.S. Bach, and one of the greatest musical minds alive today, Gil Goldstein. Each movement features a different odd time signature: 1. Rondo (5/8, 6/8), 2. Song (7/8, 8/8) 3. Fugue (11/8, 12/8) 4. Waltz (9/8, 8/8) 5. Passacaglia (13/8).

An etude in both rhythm and counterpoint, the level of these movements vary from intermediate to advanced. It’s recommended that the piece be performed in its entirety, as each movement is a variation on the same theme. It makes for both a great teaching piece and a strong recital work.
