    Gnomic Variations is an interesting piece in that the pianist plays a good deal of it within the piaNo. The 18 variations each follow their own highly individualistic and autonomous character. The brevity and forcefulness of its musical material make Gnomic Variations one of Crumb's most concentrated and powerful works. It is dedicated to Jeffrey Jacob who provides introductory text to the edition.
