Steve Danyew's music has been hailed as "startlingly beautiful" and "undeniably well crafted and communicative" by the Miami Herald, and has been praised as possessing "sensitivity, skill and tremendous sophistication" by the Kansas City Independent.

Chorale Variations is scored for two marimbas and consists of five short movements. I wrote the chorale-like music of the second movement first, which inspired several related ideas (variations, if you will) that I knew I wanted to explore and develop within the larger work. The second and last movements feature the chorale in its entirety; in the other movements, I develop motives drawn from the chorale. Chorale Variations was commissioned by Escape X in 2013. – Steve Danyew
