Programme Note

One of Copland's favorite pieces was his early Piano Variations. Disappointed that the work was performed infrequently, he decided to transcribe the variations for orchestra in response to a commission from the Louisville Orchestra. He had thought about making the arrangement for a long time. "It was a unique challenge to think of this material in terms of orchestral color," Copland said.

-Vivian Perlis, 1998
