Beethoven: The Diabellie Variations

14 October @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

£5 – £20

James Lisney, piano

The late works of composers, artists and writers can be intransigent and contradictory, sometimes valedictory, but often display an exceptional aesthetic mastery and distilled artistic focus.

Beethoven’s ‘Diabelli’ variations, 33 variations for piano on a waltz by the music publisher and composer Anton Diabelli. Considered to be one of the greatest sets of variations for keyboard alongside Bach’s ‘Goldberg’ variations, it is a work of great wit, humour, ingenuity, allusion and parody combined with a vast range of textures, pulse, sonority and movement.

” a breathtaking interpretation of some of the last works of the great composers” (Seen and Heard International)


Franz Schubert – Impromptus D 935 nos 1 and 3
Ludwig van Beethoven – 33 Variations on a Waltz by Diabelli, opus 120

The audience will not exceed 150, to allow for comfortable distancing.

Please note that there is no interval in this performance.
