Theme and Variation in Four Movements Slated for Fall Release | Download PRESS KIT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHICAGO:
A few seasons have past and now we are approaching the end of our journey. Theme and Variation in Four Movements has reached post-production and will be available this fall. The music so tirelessly composed by Rasson Bet-Yonan is here for you and your family to enjoy.

Bet-Yonan’s originality is unmistakable as he weaves east and west together into seamless variations on Assyrian folk melodies. This piano piece is a prelude to his skill as a composer and to the many more compositions still in preproduction.

Acquaint your self and others to music that echoes the past as well as the future. We feel the music we have
produced deserves notice not only from our key audience, the Assyrian community, but also from all backgrounds. Any invitation for others to simply discover the complete production would be greatly appreciated.
