Notes & Reviews:

"Serkin's technique, never entirely impeccable, is fiery here, burning through the fast variations at a white heat. His tone is astoundingly varied here, brightly shinning in the contrapuntal variations and clearly glowing in the lyrical variations. But, most importantly, the interpretation is astonishingly individualistic. The comedy, tragedy, melancholy, and depth of humanity is characteristically Serkin's. Coupled with a magisterial and magical Opus 109 Sonata recorded two days after the variations, this Diabelli should be heard by anyone who loves late Beethoven in general and these works in particular." -All Music
