Notes and Editorial Reviews
Daniel-Ben Pienaar follows his acclaimed recording of Bach’s groundbreaking Goldberg Variations by scaling the heights of Beethoven’s monumental 33 variations on a waltz by Anton Diabelli. These late works are some of Beethoven’s most adventurous, suitably challenging for Pienaar’s technical wizardry and probing intellect. He complements the set with Beethoven’s last great work for solo piano, the Bagatelles, Op. 126, which are no mere trifles. As with his previous releases, Pienaar contributes in-depth notes that delve deep into the music’s enigmas. Combined with his sometimes provocative, always enlightening interpretations, Pienaar has once again created a highly satisfying release for the committed classical listener.
