The musical form theme and variations became popular as a cornet showpiece in the early 1900s. Simple themes or popular folk songs from a variety of cultures were used. The lyrical theme would be played, then a series of variations followed demonstrating the technical skill and virtuosity of the player. Often triple tonguing and/or range extremes were used as showoff devices. The most famous of these cornet theme and variations is the Carnival of Venice.
