Beethoven. 33 Diabelli variations
Ta-DA-DA-DAAA. The composer who wrote the four most recognizable notes in music history. Ludwig van Beethoven is considered one of the greatest composers of all time. He would turn 250 this year! We are joining the worldwide birthday celebration of the musical genius. Beethoven began a new era in music. It's unlikely for there to be a composer who has not relied on the achievements of this great master of dramaturgy. His work is the triumph of the human spirit and the triumph of good over evil.
One day, the Austrian composer Anton Diabelli decided to publish a work written by many composers. Diabelli has sent notes of his waltz to many colleagues, asking them to write their variations. This letter was also received by Ludwig van Beethoven. He then created a monumental work. Beethoven transformed the modest waltz theme into 33 miniatures very different in character, but united by a single dramatic line.
Variations on Diabelli's Waltz became the pinnacle of Beethoven's work for piano solo. Virtuoso from Lviv Andriy Makarevych will perform the whole cycle during one concert at the Organ Hall.
