About

Uri Caine took the piano works from Beethoven and composed 33 Variations after the Waltz from Diabelli for orchestra and piano especially written for the famous German Baroque orchestra, Concerto Köln. Each variation seems to be a new chorus like in the traditional style of jazz performances. This adaption is a new analysis of classical music by Uri Caine who has re-composed previously the music of Gustav Mahler, Richard Wagner, Robert Schumann and Johann Sebastian Bach. Caine finds a new natural way to build a synthesis with classical music from the past and contemporary jazz.

The artwork for this album is by the German architect Paul Schmitthenner. He created variations of a house like Beethoven has composed the Variations of the Waltz by Diabelli. Schmitthenner wrote: "From mouth to ear, from hand to hand, knowledge and experience are transmitted. In this process of transmission, something is divested from the old and added to the new, often unnoticed. Novelty, however, always grows on the soil of the old. If that which is new is better, then it is progress, man's sole worthy movement, progression toward a higher state of humanity. Only that which serves humanity is progress. Progress as a natural transformation of life, not change for the sake of change, change in its natural course." Uri Caine's Diabelli is progress, a change in its natural course.
