Variations 14-15

Variation 14 introduces a compound quadruple meter – some more rhythmic variety. Other than that, it is quite simple. The quarter-eighth rhythm is characteristic of the Siciliana and, in fact, the rhythm of the top parts in the original piece use the characteristic Siciliana rhythms and gestures as well.

Notice how the harmonic progression is still the same, only now the chords change every half bar.
