'William Kinderman is the scholar-performer to whom Alfred Brendel entrusts his programme notes ... and the author of a recent Beethoven monograph ... [This playing] takes an expansive delight in the music's wonder-filled journey ... toughened by the many insights his research has yielded ... Not to be missed' (The Times)
'Really in a class of its own, remarkably fresh and well thought out ... The most outstanding Diabelli Variations to have appeared for ages' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)
'Pianistically and interpretatively engaging, Kinderman's Diabelli Variations is certainly one of the most original and compelling to date' (Journal of The Beethoven Society of Europe)
'A formidable pianist … Kinderman's exemplary clarity allows us to hear every detail of the amazing score and to marvel afresh at its beauty and sheer ingenuity' (The Sunday Times)
Recorded in Schloss Gottesaue, Karlsruhe, Germany, in January 1994
