'These works require the utmost in panache and glitter, Demidenko's scintillating fingers provide that in spades' (Gramophone)

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Innocent and harmless, born of childhood and untroubled times, the variations on a German national air (1826) – actually not so much German as Tyrolean Austrian – can be seen as a preparation, in kind and method, for the larger scale canvas of the Là ci darem variations, Op 2 (1827).
