Editor: Friedhelm Klugmann ► 32 Variations on an original theme in c minor, WoO 80, is a solo piano work by Ludwig van Beethoven. It was composed in 1806. The work consists of an eight-bar main theme and 32 variations. A chord progression in the left hand, based upon a descending chromatic bass, serves as an important structural device. The short and sparsely melodic theme, as well as the emphasis on the bass line, reflect a possible influence of the chaconne. The variations differ in character, technical difficulty and dynamics.
