PXC002 Variations On A Theme By Rossini - Chopin, F. (PDF DOWNLOAD)


These brilliant variations (originally for flute) were composed by Chopin in 1824. The theme is taken from the final aria of Rossini´s opera ´Cenerentola´ (Cinderella) where the heroine bids a joyous farewell to all her days spent as a house-keeper. Hurrah!  In this virtuosic arrangement the tricky bits are cheekily shared between the three instuments, making it a little less exhausting than the original, but just as much fun!
