Beethoven - Diabelli Variations

Serhiy Salov, piano

One of the Festival’s traditions is the annual presentation of JS Bach’s Goldberg Variations. This rule is almost maintained, but with an exception: this year we are presenting Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations instead. Played by Ukrainian pianist and Montrealer by adoption Serhiy Salov, these variations are, like Bach’s, veritable summits of musical writing. The great pianist Alfred Brendel commented: ” The Diabelli Variations are a supreme achievement, uniting past, present and future, humor, virtuosity and the sublime.” What more is there to say?
