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 Andres and one side dish and punch for a potluck reception when doors open, and following 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). Expecting 10 to 15 attendees total. Actual performance lasts about 75 minutes.

Accessibility Note: 3 steps on walkway to entry hall, 30-inch doors inside.
