Igor Levit piano

Beethoven and Rzewski


  • 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)
        • 33 Variations in C on a waltz by Diabelli Op. 120
  • Interval
  • Frederic Rzewski (b.1938)
        • Variations on 'The People United'
