Happy Birthday Variations
Valerie Stephenson's clever "Happy Birthday Variations" presents the well known tune in the styles of Handel, Pachelbel, Brahms, and Beethoven, to name a few. The work may be performed in its entirety or, if desired, some portions may be performed separately. Performance possibilities are given with suggestions on how to "lift" particular variations of your choice to suit a particular birthday being celebrated. Footnotes are included throughout to help with performance challenges. This piece is a unique way to honor someone special on their birthday! Set in F Major and f minor, this work is 100 measures.
