To end, Cooper tackles the greatest set of keyboard variations since Bach’s Goldberg Variations. Beethoven was supposed to contribute a single musical paragraph on a theme by a shop assistant acquaintance, but couldn’t resist the urge to write more.
He delivered 33 variations that took the name Diabelli. They are an exploration of mood, movement and mindset – a journey from the simple to the celestial taking in every imaginable emotion in between.
