Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini (New Age remix) – Intermediate Piano Solo
Rachmaninoff’s “Rhapsody” is a set of 24 variations on one of Paganini’s Caprices for Solo Violin. This is the Eighteenth Variation, which is the most well known of the 24 and has been featured in many films, including “Somewhere in Time” and “Groundhog Day.” While Paganini’s theme is in minor, the 18th variation is based on an inversion of the theme and is in a major key. This New Age arrangement keeps the original key of D-flat major – not only does it have a richer sound, but it’s actually an easier key to read the chords with accidentals. 3 pages. Intermediate level. Performance time: approximately 2:40.
