Impressions on a Theme by Beethoven

Kevin Olson

This duo contains a series of modern variations to one of Beethoven’s most simple, yet haunting themes-his Allegretto movement of the Seventh Symphony. Kevin Olson transforms this movement using a variety of contemporary styles - ranging from impressionism, to jazz, to atonality. While each "impression" has a distinct personality, many melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic ties maintain Beethoven’s original ideas. Enjoy tackling this challenging tribute to one of Beethoven’s greatest melodies!
