Beethoven often incorporated musical influences from other countries in his works. Jean Kleeb has picked up on this idea and developed it further in these arrangements for piano solo. In his tributes to Beethoven he emphasizes ethnic attributes such as “alla turca” or he coaxes exotic rhythms out of certain works with playful exaggeration. At other times, he simply enjoys demonstrating the stark differences between the “classical” piano piece and world music. Enjoy pieces in samba style, with Cuban rhythms or jazzy-Arabic-like scales. These pieces are fun to play, making Jean Kleeb’s “Beethoven Around the World” a true musical pleasure.
