From there, the variations began, developing harmonic richness and rhythmic complexity, as the movement built in power and intensity. Expressive solos by the violist Lesley Robertson and cellist Christopher Costanza came off as cadenza-like improvisations, giving all the more power to the return of the formal, driving precision of the principal theme. The movement built to a climactic, major-key conclusion in repeated broken chords that rang through the hall.D- It's all about the Ginger with Hello, I'm Scott's latest post.
