Diabelli Variations

Michael Houstoun

Michael Houstoun follows his monumental Beethoven piano sonatas boxed set with a recording of what many believe to be the final word when it comes to solo piano music.

There is no doubt that Michael Houstoun is one of the great Beethoven interpreters of the our time, an artist of exceptional skill, perception, and acuity. Beautifully recorded by Rattle's in-house engineer Steve Garden and produced with considerable perception and attention to detail by Kenneth Young, this recording has captured Michael at the peak of his artistic clarity, focus, and insight.
