"La Folia" Fantasy Variations
By Anthony St. Pierre May 2018
Sn or A
Anthony St. Pierre has composed well over a dozen Folia variation sets for diverse media, including sets for 1, 2, 3, & 4 recorders, and one for alto recorder & piano. This set of four variations for a solo sopranino may be played to good effect on the alto as well. It qualifies as a "fantasy" because there is no bar-for-bar or beat-for-beat correspondence between the theme and each variation. In this way, it differs from most other Folia variations. It is suitable for a fairly accomplished player. Duration: 5'30"  Performed by Anthony St. Pierre, sopranino.
