About

After her acclaimed complete recording of Beethovenís piano sonatas, Mari Kodama returns with a programme consisting of Beethoven string quartets transcribed for piano by Saint-SaŽns, Mussorgsky and Balakirev, as well as Beethovenís variations on the finale of Mozartís Clarinet Quintet. Most pieces are recorded for the first time. Kaleidoscope is designed as a homage, considering and experiencing Beethoven through the lens of other great composers.

Mari Kodama is one of the most extraordinary pianists of our age, and has an impressive PENTATONE discography, featuring Beethovenís complete piano sonatas (2003-2014), piano concertos of Loewe and Chopin (2003), Tchaikovsky Ballet Suites for Piano Duo (2016), De Fallaís Nights in the Gardens of Spain (2017) and Martinůís Concert for Two Pianos (2018).
