Vinny Fuerst: Twinkle Variations

Everyone knows the popular English lullaby Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. The lyrics are from an early 19th-century English poem, The Star by Jane Taylor. The poem, which is in couplet form, was first published in 1806 in Rhymes for the Nursery, a collection of poems by Taylor and her sister Ann. It is sung to the tune of the French melody Ah! vous dirais-je, Maman, which was published in 1761 and later used by Mozart for a famous set of variations. This set of variations travels from joyous, to somber, to ethereal and back again.

Luigi Nono achieved prominence after World War II as an uncompromising modernist seeking to revolutionize music in Europe. Along with fellow Italians Luciano Berio and Bruno Maderna, Nono attended the influential Darmstadt Summer Courses and became associated with other young modernists . . . 


I love your wide-ranging, interesting and very playable arrangements. Please keep doing what you're doing! . . .
