Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Anton Diabelli, a Viennese publisher and composer of popular music for amateurs, published Beethoven's 33 Variations on a Waltz for Pianoforte in 1823. A year later, he republished the set as Part I of a two-volume collection, Part II of which comprised 50 variations on the same "Given Theme," each written by a different "prominent composer." Among those who contributed were Hummel, Czerny, Kalkbrenner, Moscheles, Schubert, Archduke Rudolf, and the 11-year-old Liszt. The "Given Theme" was a waltz, "Ein Deutsche," written by Diabelli himself. Even judged by the highest standards of Beethoven's output, the Diabelli holds a very special place among his works: a magnum opus that summarizes not only Beethoven's own experiments as a composer, but those of the whole German musical tradition to which he considered himself a rightful heir.

MusicWeb International, 3rd March 2014
I found his playing involving and engaged. One aspect of his playing that caught my ear early on was the strength of his left hand. I can imagine that some listeners might even find some of the variations a little too bass-heavy though I liked the firmness and definition that Feltsman brings to the bass line.
