    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.
