About

Now available as a 6CD set, here are the Folksong Arrangements by Beethoven.

Beethoven wrote these arrangements of Scottish, Irish, Welsh and other folk songs, commissioned by his publisher, as a means to earn money. However, as was often the case with him, he took the commission very seriously and instead of merely adding simple accompaniments to the songs, he created little works of art, adding introductions, original harmonies and intricate accompaniments worthy of the concert hall.

One may find many a hidden treasure among these attractive, sentimental, comical or rustic songs!

First released on the Brilliant Classics Complete Beethoven Edition.
