AFM The People United Will Never Be Defeated Program

One of the most magnificent piano works of the 20th century, this “tour de force” is a theme and variations of epic proportions frequently compared to Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations or J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Taking his theme from a Chilean worker’s song, American composer Federic Rzewski crafts 36 variations exploring a variety of music styles from neo-romanticism to jazz and the avant-garde. Commissioned for the celebration America’s Bicentennial.
