Music on Park Avenue is back! The popular series hosted by Scandinavia House and Per Tengstrand welcomes its audience back to Victor Borge Hall in the fall of 2021. In the second concert in the series, Tengstrand will perform Beethoven’s “33 Variations over a Waltz by Diabelli.”
In 1819, the music publisher Anton Diabelli asked a large group of composers to write one variation each on a waltz. Beethoven submitted not one, but 33, and it is celebrated as perhaps the greatest set of piano variations next to Bach’s “Goldberg Variations.” With relentless imagination, Beethoven turns this simple and banal theme into creations full of beauty, drama and, in fact, mockery.
Do not miss Per Tengstrand’s interpretation of one of the most important piano works in history!
