  • Beethoven -Dressler Variations 1783
    Beethoven -Dressler Variations 1783 Variations in C minor on a March by Dressler. WoO 63 Young Ludwig, the son of an over-imbibing tenor and grandson of a highly successful Kappelmeister (music director), also named Ludwig van Beethoven, realized at this age that his father, Johann, could no longer be relied upon to provide a steady income for the family, comprising of Ludwig, his two younger brothers, Karl and Kaspar, and his mother Maria nee Keverich. So at age 13 he sought and gained employment in the Bonn court orchestra as harpsichordist and violist. His music teacher, Neefe, had given him a good grounding in composition and the Dressler Variations were published locally, at his own expense, in 1783. Mozart at this time was only 27 and very well known in Bonn by his reputation and publications. These variations are certainly in Mozart's style although if one listens carefully, one can hear inklings of Beethoven's more visceral language. This music was intended for the harpsichord. The piano existed then but was not capable of the volume required to be heard in large halls.

  • Schubert German Dances D43, #1-7
    Schubert German Dances D43, #1-7 Written by 16 y.o. Schubert. Sadly, he only had 15 yrs. more to live. Thankfully, he left an enormous amount of music behind. Played on a Forte-Piano, similar in sound to an instrument of Schubert's own time. These dances were actually meant to be danced to, long before 'canned' music was almost to obliterate live music for public occasions.

  • Beethoven Sonata Op 78 1st Mvt.
    Beethoven Sonata Op 78 1st Mvt. A sonata in F# Major; a truly weird key; difficult to read and to play. The poor hands don't get much opportunity to acclimatise themselves to it. Probably why this sonata is very rarely heard. Ironically, it was Beethoven's favourite, along with his Appassionata. Maybe he just wanted to keep it for himself. This is the first of two movements.
