Theme And Variations20041030

In this workshop session Charles Hazlewood, pianist David Owen Norris and the BBC Concert Orchestra look in detail at the very different ways three great composers have, in Mozart's words, "taken a tune for a walk".

They explore orchestral variations by Haydn, the slow movement of the "Surprise" Symphony, Elgar's approach in the "Enigma" Variations and give a complete performance of Gershwin's colourful Variations on "I Got Rhythm".
