Kuljerić has often returned to the musical material of the ballet Riky Levi (also Five Scenes from the Ballet Riky Levi for Orchestra, Chanson Triste for Strings). For his Variations he says: " This is a constant dialogue between the two instruments in a form of a lapidary haiku drawing, picturing a grotesque and ironic dance with some distant echoes of Music Hall"
