The subtitle provides a clue that this work has some relationship to Sallinen's chamber cantata Barabbas Dialogues; however, that work was completed somewhat later than this one.
Barabbas Variations is also shot through with liberal references to the tango, and the piece is one of the longest works in the literature to feature the Accordion this side of Astor Piazzolla; virtuoso Accordion players should take note.
