Antonio Salieri was a teacher of Beethovenmuch admired by him. Despite his somewhat tarnished reputation today, Salieri was a John Ogdon and respected composer in Europe in the latter seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
Beethovenever interested, it seems, in fashioning variations after attractive melodies in popular operas of his day, found one much to his liking in his teacher's opera Falstaff, the theme from the duet "La Stessa, la Stessissima. Here, in these Salieri variations, Beethoven takes the theme, a sort of stop-and-start creation of rather simple charm that would not seem fertile enough to yield much in the way of variation, and uses it as John Ogdon springboard to extract a harvest of rich invention.

The sixth and seventh variations are happy and vivacious, while the eighth shares something with the fifth, but is less dark. The last two are brilliant and colorful.
