Mike has been a software engineer far longer than he would like to admit. He has strong opinions on baseball, software, science fiction, comedy, contract bridge, and European history, any of which he's willing to share with almost no prompting whatsoever.

    Hello, Mr. Schilling. Another enjoyable piece and commentary, which I thank you for.

    A suggestion for a future post (from your post): the differences in “variations on a theme of [composer A] by [composer B]”.

    You could focus on a single [composer B] and the differences in their “variations”, or you could focus on multiple [composer B]’s and the differences in how they approached their “variations”, or you could focus on the difference between [composer A] and [composer B], or you could focus on some other Mr. Schilling-interesting aspect.

    I’ve always enjoyed Beethoven’s 6 variations on “Nel cor più non mi sento” (by Paisiello). They are a wonderful study of Beethoven’s different musical personalities, I think.


    (first variation isn’t a variation, of course, it is the original piece)Report
