Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody of a Theme on Paganini, Opus 40, variation 18, has been a favorite in western culture since the composer first released it. In this version of the piece, Chas Hathaway improvises a number of unique chord progressions, altering Rachmaninoff’s variation in several ways. Having always been amused by the length of the title of the piece, and after transposing it to E flat, Chas decided to call the piece, A Transposition of an Improvisation of a Variation of  Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

Still, you’ll enjoy it.
