Piano solo – Noel: Variations
Piano solo - Noel Variations
Noël Variations for piano solo is as the title suggests a series of seven variations on the fourth number from Louis-Claude D’Aquin’s 18th century Livre de Noël for organ. The tune has words (in colloquial French) that recount the Annunciation and constitutes a kind of preamble or companion to the Magnificat. It is a seasonal kind of music that is at home at Christmastime.
