The composer says: In the tradition of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's "Variations a travers les siecles." Astor Piazzola's "Histoire du Tango" and Argento's song cycle "Letters from Composers," I have taken an historical view of composition for my "Variations on a Theme by Sor." This new set of variations follows Sor’s little Menuet in c minor op. 24 No 1 as it makes its epic journey across time and space through the nineteenth century and into the early years of the twentieth century. During its travels, the theme meets and pays its respects to the godfathers of nineteenth century music and as a result is irrevocably transformed.

Variations 12 and 14 from this composition, served as the set-piece for the 2011 GFA International Concert Artists Competition (ICAC).
