Program Notes:

While composing a chamber work that included the guitar, ideas for a solo piece started to appear. Soon, I found myself composing a prelude and set of variations, a process that was quiet challenging for me, as I do not play the guitar. The variations are not to be taken in the traditional sense of melodic development over a fixed form. Here, they are based on fragments, or motives from the prelude.
