Home > Diabelli - Lesson in C Opus 125 No 6 > Background
Lesson in C by Diabelli is set for the 63rd Hong Kong Schools Music Festival Grade 1 Piano Class, 2011. It has previously been set for Grade 1 ABRSM examinations.
Diabelli's most famous contribution to the piano repertoire was, strangely enough, written not entirely by himself. It was a set of variations by Beethoven (Opus 120) on a theme composed by Diabelli, becoming known as the Diabelli Variations.
You may listen to Pollini playing Beethoven's Diabelli Variations here:
