Composition Date: Instrumentation Set Number 1: The work is a set of variations based on Chopin's c minor Prelude Op. Janina Fialkowska has long been admired for her sensitive interpretations of Chopin's music and she performed this new work with chopin nocturne in c minor adobe three commissioning orchestras in the fall of The c minor prelude's immediately recognizable melody, harmonic design and compact bar length make it an ideal springboard for variations and other composers in the past have also been inspired to treat this prelude in a theme and variations format.
Burge's work begins with an orchestral introduction that leads to the piano's solo statement of the theme. The theme is presented exactly as Chopin composed it, although the orchestra drifts into the Chopin original towards the end of this opening statement.

The first two variations are somewhat up chopin nocturne in c minor adobe with clearly stated fragments of the theme being passed back and forth the between the soloist and orchestra while the third variation is a slow reflection of the melody that exemplifies the Chopin characteristic of highly independent rhythmic freedom between the pianist's hands.
Variations four, five and six each gain chopin nocturne in c minor adobe harmonic and virtuosic intensity until the work reaches the seventh variation which is the emotional heart of the piece. Indeed, variation seven could well be subtitled, Nocturne, as the music becomes more intimate in the way that the piano creates a texture of a lyrical right-hand melody supported by a left-hand accompaniment-a trait that is common to all Chopin's Nocturnes.
Variation eight pays final tribute to Chopin by reinterpreting the theme in a waltz-like fashion, a genre that Chopin repeatedly returned to during his life. Towards the end of this last variation, the piano has a brief solo that leads to a coda during which the piano and orchestra push each other along in dramatic fashion until the design leaflet cadence.
