Day 253: Piano Variations IV, Bagatelles I

BeethovenCD58There are 45 tracks on today’s CD. I’m not going to list them all.

They’re broken up into two sections, however.

I will list those:

33 Variations in C Op. 120

11 Bagatelles Op. 119

I’m not a fan of variations CDs that contain so many tracks. It’s hard for me to appreciate or get into compositions that only last a minute or so.

I will say Track 3 (“Poco allegro”) reminded me of Dave Brubeck. It had a Boogie-Woogie jazz feel to it.

The rest of these tracks, although well crafted, don’t interest me. They’re not long enough in which to immerse myself.
