Beethoven's Thirty-two Variations were written in 1806 and therefore represent the composer in full command of his creative gifts. The key scheme of these Variations is interesting : Variations 1-12 are in C minor, 13-17 in C major, and 18-32 in C minor.
F. Bonavia , in an article in the RADIO Times, said that in these Variations Beethoven ' recalls Bach on account of the material and spiritual unity of a work that resembles a chaconne in every particular. There is no change of rhythm and the only Change in tonality is given by the passage from minor into major

Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck (1562-1621) was one of the greatest Dutch organists of the early seventeenth century. He left a great number of compositions which were some years ago collected and published in a complete edition. But it is as a teacher that he is chiefly famous. At one time all the leading organists in Germany had been his pupils, and so widespread was his influence and so sound were his methods that even Bach, born over a hundred years later, could be said to have been indirectly a pupil of Sweelinck.
