• Following on his acclaimed recordings of Beethoven’s sonatas, sonatinas and bagatelles, Ronald Brautigam here presents the first disc of four with variations, comprising works composed between 1796 and 1802.
• The ‘Eroica variations’ Op.35 is on a much larger scale than any of the variations he had written before, and Beethoven himself described it as a work in ‘a wholly new style’.
• Brautigam has used two different fortepianos on this recording: the earlier works are played on an instrument by Paul McNulty after Walter & Sohn c.1805, while the Op.35 set is performed on another by the same maker, after Conrad Graf c.1819.
