The main theme of these variations is composed of the first four notes played each hour by the carillon of the world famous bell tower of the London Parliament. After a foggy introduction the first variation presents us the Guards on duty in front of Buckingam Palace, whereas the second variation portraits a nice Irish lady visiting London town. In the third variation we meet the legendary Teddy-Boys with their leather outfits and impressive motorbikes. After the description of the bagpipers in the fourth variation, the composer concludes with an overall picture of the majestic British capital.
