Duration: about 1h15


Ludwig van Beethoven / Hans Zender
33 Variations sur 33 variations - Interprétation composée sur les Variations Diabelli de Beethoven


Orchestre Poitou-Charentes
Jean-François Heisser, conducting
It was an editor named Diabelli who provided the rather uninspired waltz that serves as the theme for the Diabelli Variations and Beethoven’s resulting work is a masterful exercise in transformation.  Composed in 2011, Hans Zender’s virtuosic and unpredictable 33 Variations on 33 Variations are more of an exercise in zooming, of approaching and distancing themselves from the original.
