Variations on a Theme by J. Dimond in D minor for Solo Viola


The Dimond Variations is a collection of four virtuosic variations exploring contrasts in tempo, articulation, timbre, range, and expression.  The intended improvisatory style is influenced by J.S.Bach’s Chaconne for solo violin, and Jazz improvisation.

The viola solo is currently included in the AMEB Syllabus 2024 as a List A for ‘Certificate of Performance’ Viola
