5.0 out of 5 stars Alles gute zum Geburtstag, Ludwig
By Leon Avelino on August 18, 2020
The appropriately titled This is (Not) Beethoven is, indeed, not Beethoven and it is (not) an homage. This is not strictly contemporary composition, nor is it a re-composition of Beethoven's music. Beethoven, the musician, is a presence throughout Safaian's variations, alongside other foundation stones from Homer to the Unknown of the Seine to Mies van der Rohe. Safaian does more than allude to these literary, historical and musical elements. He creates a propulsive, romantic and decidedly intimate synthesis that reflects the world as it was and as it is - and it's all thoroughly realized by Sebastian Knauer's astonishing virtuosity. Together, they have composed something original and personal: a touching love letter to an untouchable genius on the occasion of his 250th birthday.
