The“Variations for Orchestra”: a stout page that reveals expert use of the modernorchestra and a clever search for instrumental effects by means of a successionof rhythmic and tonal combinations. The strictly counterpointal presentationunfolds in clarity and continuity, led by a calm and constructive talent thatnever approaches the dry manner of many instrumental effects characteristic ofGhedini, such as the antiquated use of brass instruments both in the unchangeddiscovery of counterpointal themes and in the religious concerts, and has theaspect of a conscious act of “Hommage” of a master.
