Theme and Variations - Rocherolle

Eugénie Rocherolle presents a sixteen-measure theme and carries it through five variations. The theme is happy and bright, with a quick tempo. The variations involve harmonic changes, meter changes, and tempo changes, all combined to create a flavor-filled piece. Rocherolle's talent for creating a gorgeous melodic line is apparent in the second variation -- the melody stays in the listener's mind. The final variation brings this piece to an impressive dramatic finish.
