To this day, the Diabelli Variations op.120 remain a challenge for concert pianists. This CD is a recording by the talented Armenian pianist Spartak Margaryan.
Spartak Margaryan was born in Hamburg in 1994. He spent the first ten years of his life growing up in Germany and Sweden. He began playing the piano at the age of eleven and graduated from the prestigious Alexander Spendaryan State Music School for highly gifted children in Yerevan, Armenia. Participations and sensational prizes at international competitions followed: 2007 and 2008 Grand Prix at the International “Flame” Piano Competition in Paris, 2008 First Prize at the International Piano Competition Solphi Al Wadi in Damascus/Syria and 2009 Second Prize at the 18th International Piano Competition N. Rubinstein in Paris. Spartak Margaryan performs regularly as a soloist and in chamber music ensembles in Armenia, Italy, Poland, Russia, France and Germany.

Prof. Konstantin Lifschitz comments on the recording of his young colleague Spartak Margary-an thus: “I listened to Spartak Margaryan’s version of Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations with great pleasure and eagerness. This is a highly refined and extremely stable construction by one of the most promising musicians of our time. My colleague’s recording is the result of intense study of the varied and complex score and deserves every attention for that alone, to say nothing of its long Arcadian arcs.”
