The piano music of Beethoven is an indispensable part of the repertoire of any serious pianist. Especially appealing are the variations, magnificent compositions second only to the sonatas and concertos in importance, and among the most recorded and performed music in the piano literature. This volume contains all 21 sets of Beethoven's solo piano variations, including the extremely popular "Diabelli Variations," Op. 120, which, in the view of many critics, accomplished for the piano what Bach's "Goldberg Variations" did for the harpsichord. Also included are the perennially admired Thirty-two Variations in C Minor, the Eroica Variations, Op. 35, and a treasury of variations on themes by Dressler, Salieri, Sussmayr, Righini, and other composers. Reprinted from the authoritative Breitkopf & Hartel edition, this music manifests the prodigious invention and imagination the master brought to the variation form. Now the complete corpus of variations is available in this inexpensive reliable edition, ready to inspire and challenge pianists and music lovers."
