Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Daniel-Ben Pienaar follows his acclaimed recording of Bach's groundbreaking Goldberg Variations by scaling the heights of Beethoven's monumental 33 variations on a waltz by Anton Diabelli. These late works are some of Beethoven's most adventurous, suitably challenging for Pienaar's technical wizardry and probing intellect. He complements the set with Beethoven's last great work for solo piano, the Bagatelles, Op. 126, which are no mere trifles. As with his previous releases, Pienaar contributes in-depth notes that delve deep into the music's enigmas. Combined with his sometimes provocative, always enlightening interpretations, Pienaar has once again created a highly satisfying release for the committed classical listener.

Fanfare
A completely satisfying account of this music.

Sunday Times, November 2012
The young South African makes light of its technical rigours and springs plenty of interpretative surprises...Pienaar skates with brilliant insouciance through tantalisingly brief prestos, and through scherzando and vivace variations, while giving due weight and depth to the slowest sections.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2012
Ben-Pienaar certainly holds his own in these gentle, smiling, quirky pieces...[In the Diabellis] Ben-Pienaar is excellent, though he is less well recorded than he should be.
