Diabelli variations by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

21 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acknowledged as one of the leading pianists of his generation, an eminent interpreter of the German repertoire, Helmchen explores various periods and composers (including Messiaen!). Before the complete concertos, planned for 2020, he tackles the Diabelli Variations, 'a climax in the life of a pianist'. He sees these variations as 'a voyage to the very heart of the infinity of human feelings and moods, by turns profound, philosophical, satirical'. He regards the cycle as a visionary work that heralds future developments in music, containing the first stirrings of twentieth-century minimalism, atonality and abstraction. This recording is the end result of a long personal association and numerous concerts; a powerful version in which each variation emerges as a masterpiece in its own right

2 editions published in 2007 and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auch wenn von einem Mangel an Referenzaufnahmen der Hornkonzerte Mozarts nicht die Rede sein kann, so ist die vorliegende Einspielung mit der Academy of St. Martin in the Fields mit dem Solisten Timothy Brown doch eine der besten. Die Wandlungsfähigkeit seines Tons, der mal säuselnd, mal schmetternd daherkommt, und die beispiellose Spiel- und Stilpartnerschaft mit dem Orchester haben neue Maßstäbe gesetzt. Wichtige Werke in "brillanter" (Klassik heute 12/99) Interpretation, die in keiner Bibliothek fehlen sollten. (pr)
