Franz Hummel: Diabelli Variations / Angela Cholakian, piano

Album Summary

>Hummel, Franz : Variations (33) on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli for piano
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Franz Hummel was the first composer after Beethoven to use Anton Diabelli’s famous theme as the basis for an extended solo piano work. These variations are like a humorous, tongue-in-cheek chronicle of music, and some stylistic quotations offer a challenge, as in a musical quiz, to guess who could possibly have written which variation. Angela Cholakian is regarded as one of the most passionate and original pianists playing the romantic and contemporary literature. With phenomenal technique she effortlessly puts into practice all that her obsessive imagination demands of her.
