This piece was written in 2004 for an assignment as part of my Masters Degree. The brief was to provide suitable ambience for a museum of classical sculpture. This, together with the performers being required to dress in late-eighteenth century costume, suggested to me that the theme should be as close as possible to a classical idiom. Having considered alternative idioms, such as background furniture music and repetitive minimalist music, a neo-classical approach seemed to be the most appropriate.

Each of the variations highlights one of the five instruments, taken in the order of flute, horn, bassoon, oboe and clarinet. The variations are also contrasted in style and tempo, so as to suggest the variety of sculptures I imagine to be on display at the museum.
