Beethoven: Permanent change (III)

Thomas Demenga, cello and Eunyoo An, piano

Works by L. van Beethoven

Beethoven recorded his admiration for Mozart in the two collections of variations for cello and piano on themes from The Magic Flute. The Twelve Variations on "Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen" are contemporary to the Sonatas for Cello and Piano Op. 5, written during his stay in Berlin in 1796 and which were intended to showcase the composer as a pianist. The Seven Variations on "Bei Männern welche Liebe fühlen", written in 1801, reflect in their instrumental writing the character of a duet between Pamina (piano) and Papageno (cello).
