Variations are simple: a composer takes a favourite tune and keeps tweaking it until we’re listening to something completely new. Martyn Brabbins offers three different spins on that deceptively straightforward trick. Brahms filled his Haydn Variations with all the wit of his favourite classical master. His friend Dvořák invented his own melody, and let it grow into a masterpiece. And a team of top living composers let their imaginations ricochet off each other. In between, British tenor Stuart Jackson and BBC SSO principal horn Alberto Menéndez Escribano dive deep into Britten’s Serenade.
