Variation is a fundamental musical principle, yet its most naked expression - variation form - resists all but the broadest of descriptions. This book offers listener, performer, analyst and composer an eclectic array of approaches to `Theme and Variations', including: patterns of departure and return; real versus perceived time; strategies of propulsion and closure in an intrinsically cyclic and open-ended form; the interplay of authorial voices deriving from dialogue between the `self' of variations and the `other' of their theme; critique of a theme through a set's generic references; drama and narrative achieved through textural and tonal control; and the intrinsic sound of a variation, so different from that of a freely composed work. These topics are introduced through a general survey of the form, seen through the prisms of the provenance of themes and the ideologies of sets, before being developed through close study of Brahms's variation sets and movements. Brahms was supremely aware of his place in music history and was uncommonly self-conscious in his manipulation of different techniques of composition. His variation sets - some of the most well-crafted and beloved examples - place the interplay of forms and styles at the heart of their identity. Moreover, in their stunning breadth and diversity they offer a microcosm of Brahms's entire output, a succinct revelation of his life-long concerns. Through them we marvel at his technical and poetic mastery, and journey to the heart of his creative character.

The Thematic Catalogue of the Musical Works of Johana Pachelbel provides scholars and performers with a survey of the breadth and variety of the repertoire of the composer described by Christoph Wolff as "one of the most seminal and influential musicians of the pre-Bach generation in Germany." Pachelbel composed the majority of his 527 works for keyboard instruments, as well as choral, vocal, and chamber music, and this Thematic Catalogue presents incipits for those that can be identified. The list of works is intended to determine the totality of the corpus and knowledge about it, establish the best means of identifying each work, and settle problems of identity among similarly titled works. An essay on authorities examines the controversies over the authenticity of Pachelbel's manuscripts. Meticulously compiled with copious notes and comments, this unique volume will be invaluable to those already familiar with Pachelbel's compositions and will create new interest among those who were aware only of the universally loved canon movement of his Canon and Gigue in D.
