    Webern's music is known for its extreme brevity and strict organization. A performance of the Variations Op. 27 lasts less than ten minutes - a short period of time during which the audience experiences true extremes. Webern rehearsed the piece with several pianists, which resulted in surprisingly emotional aids to interpretation being handed down.
