Antioch: Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra Presents: Theme and Variations

February 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

<h1 class="tribe-events-single-event-title">Antioch: Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra Presents: Theme and Variations</h1>

The program explores how these three composers utilize theme and variation form; a formal compositional device by which a theme is stated and then repeated in altered form through a metamorphosis of melody, rhythm, harmony, counterpoint, timbre, orchestration, or any combination of these. Sometimes the theme is an original theme of the composer (Stravinsky) and other times it’s the theme of another composer (Arensky and Brahms).

Program:
Igor Stravinsky – Octet for Wind Instruments
Anton Arensky – Variations on a Theme of Tchaikovsky
Johannes Brahms – Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn Op. 56a

Music Director: Geoffrey Gallegos
