ANDRÁS SCHIFF plays Papillons (not at all unknown) and duets with PETER FRANKL in some of the Bail-Scenen, Op 109. and in the Bilder aus Osten. Op 66 (not very well known); and PETER FRANKL gives the first broadcast of a set of Studies in the form of free variations on a theme of Beethoven, roughly contemporary with the celebrated Etudes symphoniques but not published until 1976. With various titles, the work went through several drafts and reached the stage of a fair copy: the theme is from the second movement of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony.
