P^aganini's Theme

Caprice XX[V, Bk.

)'--Y

ID

.fr,
AFTERWORD TO THE PERFORMER

It is understood that both the form

and performance style of Pganini's theme, the concluding music of the


Caprice Variations, have been altered somewhat in order to provide a fitting ervoi for this work.
Considering the number of 'caprice-variations' which comprise this work, the performer my omit some of the
repeats in order to reduce the duation of performance time to manageable length, especially when the entire work
is being performed. It is suggested, however, that the performer observe all or most repeats in the faster variations in
order to establish clearly their style and gestural character. In slower variations, let a istic dissetion be the judge of
which reDeats to droD.

A player choosing not to pelform the entire st.is at librty to select those sections which will add up to a
satisflng whole in musical ternrs and still iepresent the intntions of the work. In a'shortened performan version,
it is strongly wged, though, that the performer include as nany of vadations 5,18,19,33,34,35,39,41,42,45,47,
48, 49 and 50 as possible, so as to preserve a balance in the stylistic spread which is a fundamental premise of this work,
