‘Variations on an Epitaph’

‘Variations on an Epitaph’ was composed in September of 2007 following the death of a young family friend. The work has since gone on to feature in Charody’s circus opera ‘The Carnival’ (Act 2, Scene 7).

‘Variations on an Epitaph’ is one of Charody’s most prominent works to date having been performed throughout Europe, Australia and the UK. The work has had several commercial releases including ‘Music for the Journey Home’ (ABC Classics) and ‘Homage’ (MGM).
