The musical compositions of Richard Burdick

Opus 81:

Variation on a theme for horn quartet, Opus 81
Written January 1994
The theme is the music from the original star trek TV series,
but it never quite gets to the original.
I was exploring the use of inversion quite a bit in this piece,
as a matter of fact, I don't know another piece that the use of
inversions quite so prominent & prevalent.

I recorded this in the afternoon on December 5 & 7, sort of a rush job.
I am still trying to decide if I like this piece or not.

I would like to know if people like this or hate it.
email me with your vote.

If you really like it I can email a PDF of the score.
