Diabelli Variations is the biggest piece Beethoven wrote for piano. There are many other recordings of this great work on the market, but none offer you a booklet with 173 pages with exclusive text from Marco Alcantara, covering the most important subjects that help you acquire a more complete understanding of this marvelous work. Alcantara's playing leaves nothing to be desired. You can hear the will of his personality combined with moments of raucous humor, tenderness, reverence and passion. In every way, this recording is a stunning achievement.

This is the first world recording using historical tuning. The piano was tuned using a tuning known as Young #1, a tuning from Beethoven's time. Inside the booklet there is a text explaining this tuning with more details.
