Variations on a theme by Paganini Op 35   More Varaitionson that theme Hungarian Dances No 3  No 6  No 7
Variations on a theme by Paganini and Hungarian Dances Our Johannes Brahms MP3 recordings illustrate the work of a master of academic classical music  composition who was associated with some of the most romantic musicians and composers of his  day. The centre piece of this selection of his work are the Variations on a theme by Paganini which  demonstrates remarkable creativity and a surprising sense of fun. Both are evident in the Hungarian  Dances where the music brings alive images of lively dancing peasants. Here we are offering a fresh  approach to the instrumentation of these works based on combinations of synthesizer sounds  including evocative steel drums and several different harps to bring fresh colours to the music and  highlight the dazzling counterpoint and harmony.  The start of Brahms Variations on a Theme by Paganini is very familiar to British listeners because it  was used as the introductory music for a long running arts programme called the South Bank Show  on TV. They were sequenced brilliantly by two Brazilians - Andre Lopes and Rogerio Cunha who made  no explicit claim to their rights and have now left no other trace on the internet.
