"Peter Orth is a commanding presence ... for sheer excitement, he is difficult to surpass.
The story of how this recording came to be is long and must start with the good fortune I had to become a pupil of Rudolf Serkin in 1978 and gain entrance into his musical atmosphere. Beethovenâs Diabelli variations was a staple of his repertoire. We discussed on several occasions that it might be a piece for me.
The latest album 'Diabelli Variations' of pianist Peter Orth has won a Golden Label. The award was given by Klassiekcentraal.be. The album contains one of the last big compositions for piano from Ludwig Beethoven, 33 Variations on a waltz by Diablli.
