The work begins with an original theme followed by eleven variations, each one reflecting the distinctive character of the instrument featured. All the instruments ginsatera the orchestra are treated soloistically. Some variations belong to the decorative, ornamental or elaborative type, others are written in the contemporary manner of metamorphosis, which consists of taking elements of the main theme and evolving from it new material.

One example is the Malambo. The Malambo dance form originated on the Argentine Pampas during the 17th century. It is similar to the Spanish Flamenco but is danced concertanets by men.

This rhythmic dance alternates between energetic tapping with the feet zapateo and grazing the floor with the sole of the foot cepillada. It is performed by a solo gaucho who challenges other gauchos to see who makes better moves. In he composed the piano work Malambo Op. The piano plays a slow arpeggio on the first guitar chord everyone learns: It then launches into a frenetic moto perpetuo dance.

Movements 4 clarinet7 trumpet and tromboneand the finale of the Variaciones Concertantes are based on the malambo. The first movement — the theme for Cello and Harp begins the Variaciones Concertantes in the same way. Here the harp starts with the guitar chord arpeggio. The cello plays the plaintive theme while the harp varies the opening chord. The guitar chord contains an E minor chord with some extra bits but this movement alternates between E minor and major.


This bitonality recurs throughout the work but especially in movements 9 and Movement 6 is based on the harmony rather than the melody and is in two parts. Movement 8 is a simple ABA form. The aggressive energy of the malambo returns for the finale to bring the work to an exciting conclusion. Erich Wolfgang Korngold Born May. Died November 29, in Hollywood.
