One of the most common stories told in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century music is that of transformation – of themes developing during the course of a movement, of melodies transformed through a series of variations, of borrowings from composers repaid with musical interest, or of material taking on new meanings through recontextualization. In this program, we explore each version of this story through works spanning the late Baroque and Classical eras, from Corelli and Couperin through Haydn and Hummel.
