Medieval Hymn Variations - Naoya Wada
In Praise of Guido d'Arezzo
Guido d'Arezzo(992 - 1050) was an Italian music theorist of the Medieval era. He developed new techniques for teaching, such as staff notation and the use of ut–re–mi–fa–so–la (later, ut became do). The original monophonic melody is written in organum in the first part, then developed in 3 modern variations, to end with a passionate finale. After the première in 2015, the piece was revised drastically, and was performed in its final edition in 2016.
