About Galaxy of Tiny Worlds

At the end of his life, like Bach with his transcendent Goldberg variations, Beethoven wrote his own ultimate piano masterwork to rival the Goldbergs.

Unlike Bach with his heartstopping Aria, Beethoven took on the challenge of turning the ridiculous into the sublime, transforming Diabelli’s trivial little waltz into a whole universe of wit, grace, rudeness, magnificence and even tragedy. See what I can do! See what life can be!
