33 Variations on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli, Op. 120
(about a one hour performance with some spoken word}
Beethoven's 33 short variations of a waltz by the Austrian music publisher Anton Diabelli (1781-1858) are considered among the greatest variations in the entire piano repertoire, in the minds of many musicians equalled only by Bach's Goldberg Variations. In 1819 Diabelli, a dilettante who was more a music publisher than composer, wrote a simple waltz melody and asked several dozen Viennese composers — among them Franz Schubert, Carl Czerny, one of Mozart's two sons, and the then 9-year old Franz Listz — to write a single variation.
The host will provide two hot hors d'oeuvres and punch for a potluck reception during intermission, and when doors open prior to the performance. Guests are welcome to bring food and wine to share as well; if considering a sweet, think about fruit instead of processed sugar. Music begins 30 minutes after doors open; please arrive on time.
Advance payment of $21 for the artist is requested (pay through Groupmuse or the PayPal link). Please NO CASH at the event (illegal in MD).
Accessibility Note: 3 steps on walkway to entry hall, 30-inch doors inside.
