  1. Variations

    Variations is a Classical/Rock fusion album by Andrew Lloyd Webber Andrew Lloyd Webber and younger brother Julian Lloyd Webber were always very close, but their two different careers meant that a collaboration seemed unlikely. It wasn't until Julian beat his brother in a bet on a Leyton Orient football match that Andrew was forced to write his cello work. As his subject, Andrew chose the theme of Paganini's 24th caprice and added 23 variations for cello and rock band. The work premiered at the 1977 Sydmonton Festival with rock band Colosseum II, featuring Gary Moore, Jon Hiseman and Don Airey being joined by Barbara Thompson, Rod Argent, and Julian Lloyd Webber. It was subsequently rearranged and recorded in 1978. It reached number 2 in the album charts. The cover is based on the painting Frederick, Prince of Wales, and his sisters by Philip Mercier.
