Now available as a 6CD set, the Folksong Arrangements by Beethoven.
Beethoven wrote these arrangements of Scottish, Irish, Welsh and various folk songs, commissioned by his publisher, as a means to earn money. However, as was often the case with him, he took the commission very serious and instead of merely adding simple accompaniments to the songs, he created little works of art, adding introductions, original harmonies and intricate accompaniments, worthy of the concert hall. One may find many a hidden treasure among these attractive, sentimental, comical or rustic songs! Performed by a variety of artists and choirs. First released on the Brilliant Classics Complete Beethoven Edition.
