Variations on a Theme of Nikita Koshkin

Written in 1995 for the Zagreb Guitar Trio, to whom the music is also dedicated. Koshkin's theme, written on 1 January 1987, was to be part of a guitar solo 3-way project between him, Štĕpán Rak and Duarte. However, by 1995, Duarte had heard nothing so, instead, he used Koshkin's theme for this trio. As it turned out the other works in the project had been written and Koshkin supplied Duarte with another theme.


Theme - Tempo di Siciliana; I - Vivo; II - Largo solenne; III - Allegro giusto, poco scherzoso; IV - Andante alla marcia; V - Tempo di minuetto; VI - Finale.
