    Variations for piano on an Aria from Mozart's Figaro

    My Dad's favourite melody is the one from the Aria of the comtess in the 4th act of Le Nozze di Figaro by Mozart. For his birthday in the last 2 days I wrote 6 variations on this theme. I hope my Dad will like it (and you, too) :-)

    Hello, Gerd - This has to be the best, most thoughtful gift idea I've heard in a very long time. Your Figaro variations are a delight, and I am sure your father will be very pleased with your wonderful gift of music.

    Thanks for also sharing it with us.

    Hello Gerd,

    This is a daring enterprise. Only the name Mozart seems to tell us to keep hands off of his music. What you did is marvellous. A set of lovely variations on a very kind tune. And the piano work (rendition) is very fine too.

    A wonderful job!

    Beautiful and sensitive. great trilling. Great performance. What an ambitious project. This may be a dumb question: was that played on a digital instrument?

    Thank you, for your kind words:-)
    Yes, the digital piano sound is from the Garritan Steinway piano.
