  4. Theme and Variations Piano Composition Contest Due Date: Nov. 15th, 2013 Winner will have their work recorded by me (I have a Steinway Grand at my disposal :thumbsup:). I'm might have a chance to premier it as well next summer, but I'll need to confirm this at a later date. Guidelines: 1. The piece needs to be in theme and variations form. 2. The theme is yours to choose but it must have NO repeated sections (Beethoven's c minor variations WoO 80 is a good example of what I'm looking for). I'd prefer a theme that is short and sweet (under 24 bars). It could be an original theme or a theme by another composer (as long as there is no copyright infringement of course). 3. The piece should be under 15 minutes. 4. The hardest pieces I've performed include Chopin's 4th Ballade and the Heroic Polonaise op 53, Scriabin's Etude op 8 #12, Beethoven Sonatas and Bach preludes and fugues. If you could keep the difficulty level at or under those pieces that would be appreciated ;) Other things to keep in mind : 5. I would prefer if the piece showcases a variety of styles. Breaks between variations are expected but I encourage you to try and bridge a few together (it's not mandatory). 6. You are welcome to compose in any style(s) you choose (Baroque, Romantic, Impressionist, the modes of limited transposition, 12 tone, ect...), it's up to you. 7. Submit the piece at any time before the due date and I'd be happy to give some advice on the piano writing. 8. And most importantly, Have Fun! I really hope this catches people's interest, I look forward to your submissions. Good Luck! :cool:
