A series of short pieces dedicated to renowned cellist Anssi Karttunen, presented during a concert in celebration of his fiftieth birthday in Helsinki in 2010. The concert was based around the Mystery Variations, a series of musical 'gifts' composed by a variety of major composers of today, to be played by Anssi himself, and all based on Colombi's Ciaconna.
