The score work around the famous theme La donna e mobile from Verdi’s Rigoletto.

It was a commission for Festival di Bellagio 2011 edition: a only one variation from various composers.

I wrote the first variation very close to original score in melody and harmony. In a second time I had the idea to go on with harmony and instrumentation progressively away from the original score and a final recapitulation in the forth and last variation.
