Kindermans study of the compositional history of Beethovens Diabelli Variations includes the first extended investigation and reconstruction of the sketches and drafts, and reveals, contrary to earlier views of its chronology, that it was actually begun in 1819, then put aside, and completed in 1822-3. Kinderman also provides an analytical discussion of the complete work, and he demonstrates how insights derived from a close study of the sketches can
illuminate Beethovens compositional ideas and attitudes and contribute substantially to a better understanding of this massive and complex set of variations.
