Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750) – virtuoso organist and composer of a wealth of orchestral, chamber and vocal music – is one of the most influential composers ever to have lived, one whose works form an established part of the repertoire of every instrument for which he wrote. This collection comprises the Goldberg Variations BWV988, a composition that takes its name from a young pupil of Bach, Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, who was in the service of Count von Keyserlingk. The Count was a notoriously bad sleeper, and requested of Bach a series of pieces for Goldberg to play to him when he could not sleep; he then considered the work to be ‘his’, although it is widely referred to by the name of its performer.
Bach’s Goldberg Variations have gained iconic status. Ever since the legendary recording of Glenn Gould in 1955 it took the world by storm, and its popularity reaches well beyond the boundaries of traditional classical music audiences. It was originally written for “Clavecimbel mit zwei Manuale”, the perfect counterpoint and instrumental brilliance of the 30 variations invite for performances on other instruments, finding new facets and hidden treasures in this immensely rich music.
