Nimbus Alliance Release New CD Recording of Beethoven's Diabelli Variations by Nick van Bloss

Following the success of his Chopin CD on Nimbus Alliance, Nick van Bloss has turned his hand to Beethoven, tackling some of the greatest and most challenging works ever written for piano -
Diabelli Variations and Appassionata Sonata. 



"The Diabelli Variations stands as one of the zeniths in keyboard writing. It is one of Beethoven's late works, but one which he seems to look back over his artistic life not with angst or trauma, but with a wise, clever and witty humour. In fact it is humour that dances through the work, with only a few interjections of plaintive and dark emotion, and innocent reflection. This isn't a piece of heavy drama - it's Beethoven with his arms wide open, giving us a wise, benevolent and humorous hug! The Appassionata Sonata contrasts perfectly - it's a darker Beethoven altogether, a more neurotic and anxious work."
