“We present here to the world Variations of no ordinary type, but a great and important masterpiece worthy to be ranked with the imperishable creations of the old Classics …”
The publisher of the Diabelli Variations was clear in expressing the exceptional nature of this work, and it has always attracted the very finest of the world's pianists to scale its heights. Now, at last, there is an Australian recording of this monumental work. Gerard Willems, Australia's pre-eminent interpreter of the music of Beethoven, has chosen a magnificent Stuart & Sons piano for this landmark album, the climax of an epic recording project that has seen Willems record the complete sonatas and piano concertos of Ludwig van Beethoven – scoring two ARIA awards in the process.
