Beethoven
33 Variations on a Waltz by Diabelli, Op. 120

Grigory Sokolov, piano 

Two hundred years later, still in my humble opinion the most astounding thing ever written for the piano.

  9. thecrescenteye said: This and his 32 Variations on a Theme are the best, I think. Also, wasn’t it Beethoven himself that said that that you could give him any theme and he could improvise on it for hours?
