Bach, J S - Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 - Chen, Pi-Hsien (piano)



Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
The Aria and 30 Variations, known as the Goldberg Variations, constitute a superb example of Johann Sebastian Bach's achievement as a composer for the clavier. The work was published in 1741 or 1742 as the fourth part of the Clavier-Uebung, a title that had been used by his predecessor as Thomaskantor in Leipzig, Johann Kuhnau. The first part of this collection of compositions for the clavier had been published complete in 1731 and included six Partitas, which had appeared annually, one by one, from 1726, three years after his appointment to the Leipzig Thomas-schule. The second part, published in 1735, contained the contrasted Italian Concerto and Overture in the French Style, and the third part, issued in 1739, contained a series of organ compositions and the keyboard Duets.

Doubt had been cast on the story associated with the Goldberg Variations, the source of the title by which they are commonly known. Bach's early biographer Forkel alleged that Count Hermann Karl von Keyserlingk, Russian ambassador to the court of Saxony in Dresden, had commissioned the work for performance by his protégé, the young harpsichordist Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, to amuse him during hours of sleeplessness.


Penguin Guide:
