Title Modern variations on the Diabelli Variations of Beethoven

Here are the 33 variations of Uri Caine on the 33 variations of Beethoven on a theme by Diabelli.

On listening attentively, one can discover that the arrangements and improvisations are sometimes symphonic, sometimes a bit jazzy, sometimes intimate.

Respectful of Beethoven's work, which certain variations recall to life, this curiosity has a place in your CD collection.

The CD is presented in a hard cover, which contains a presentation booklet… 33 architectural variations. Astonishing!

Title Jazzin' the Classics

With the provoking sub-title "A musical sacrilege", this CD invites us on a journey through the classical world in jazz fashion.

With Bach, Bizet, Chopin, Debussy, Delibes, Grieg, Liszt and others, Beethoven sees one of his works mutilated though piano rhythms, clarinet and drums. It is the Pathetique Sonata which has been chosen, adapted by Jimmie Lunceford in 1940.

Another sound for well known works.
