Variations on an Original Theme for Solo Guitar (2012) 10 mins
Dedicated to Stanley Chin
Edited and fingered by Stanley Chin
Stanley Chin is an exceptionally musically gifted classical guitarist who was a student in the Theory of Music class that Patrick Jonathan was teaching at ASWARA in Kuala Lumpur. When he enquired if his lectured had composed anything for guitar that he might prepare for his graduation recital it inspired Patrick Jonathan to take the theme from his own composition, Song for Tony, for Baritone and Guitar and use it as the basis of this set of variations.
