- Igor Levit piano
Levit presents two sets of variations, beginning with Beethoven’s vast collection based on a trivial waltz theme by Anton Diabelli, composed between 1819 and 1823, followed by the American radical Frederic Rzewski’s mighty exemplar (1975) based on a Chilean revolutionary song, which was conceived as a companion piece to the Beethoven.
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
