“Paul” Variations (1997–)
An ongoing work for piano. For his first birthday in 1997, I wrote a theme for my nephew, Paul, and each year since for his birthday I have written a variation on that theme. These variations are not meant to be played as a complete set; any number of them may be grouped together for a performance (though the theme is always to be played first).
