D-S-C-H variations


The graphic form of variations is the square, shared to two crossed musical staffs on four sectors, each of which represents a variation on one of notes of theme D-S-C-H. The sequence of performance of sectors is defined by the note located in the center of crossing which in different keys is read differently: either as D, or as S, either as C, or as Н.
