      Beethoven: Diabelli Variations, Op 120: Excerpts (20:26)

      András Schiff, Bechstein piano & Brodmann fortepiano

      Following his monumental exploration of the 32 Sonatas, András Schiff has now recorded – on two period instruments – remarkable, contrasting versions of the Diabelli Variations alongside major late works. The Sonata Op 111 and the Diabelli Variations (CD 1) are played on an original Bechstein grand from 1921, and the second reading of the Variations (paired with the Op 126 Bagatelles on CD 2) on a Hammerflugel fortepiano from Beethoven’s own day.
