A truly personal and idiomatic performance of the gigantic Diabelli Variations played by the Danish pianist Christina Bjørkøe, already world famous for her recordings of music by Danish composers Nielsen and Gade for the German record company cpo. Listen to her beautifully recorded and very stunning Beethoven.
