Beethoven's 33 short variations of a waltz by the Austrian music publisher Anton Diabelli (1781-1858) are considered among the greatest variations in the entire piano repertoire, in the minds of many musicians equalled only by Bach's Goldberg Variations. In 1819 Diabelli, a dilettante who was more a music publisher than composer, wrote a simple waltz melody and asked several dozen Viennese composers — among them Franz Schubert, Carl Czerny, one of Mozart's two sons, and the then 9-year old Franz Listz — to write a single variation.
