Britten took barely a month to compose these variations that brought him his first international success. He was 24 years old. In this remarkably intricate piece, he broadens the musical depth by using all the technical and expressive possibilities of the instruments: dynamics, tremolo, trill, pizzicato. A true challenge for our Orchestra. And a gift for Patrick Leterme, who comments on these variations with humour and clarity to delight the audience.
