Notes and Editorial Reviews
Beethoven alla Brittannia features settings of British, Scottish, Welsh and Irish folk songs arranged by Beethoven. The instrumental selections are in the beloved "theme and variation" form while vocal works are beautiful arrangements of folk tunes with piano that can only come from the great pen of Beethoven himself.
