Notes & Reviews:

"There have been many different transcriptions of Bach's original Goldberg Variations for harpsichord, but this is the first for concert harp and a very pleasant surprise in many ways... there is the lingering reverberation of the previous notes, which hang around for some time compared to the harpsichord. This gives richness and a sort of mysterious quality to the sound - especially in the detailed and excellent sonics of this DGG CD. Those listeners who tend to repeat deprecating remarks about the sound of the harpsichord should have no objection to the lovely wide-range tone of Finch's concert harp. I believe this is the most enjoyable version of the Goldberg Variations I have ever heard." -Audiophile Audition (audaud.com)



Reviews

Valuable addition to the harp repertoire.
One of Catrin Finch's aims is to make works originally written for other instruments, eg. piano concertos and sonatas, available to harpists; hence she took on the huge task of adapting Bach's Goldberg Variations, the most difficult project she has ever embarked upon. It is a resounding success. Those who admire Glenn Gould's interpretation will thoroughly enjoy this adaptation. In the same way that Gould talked through the music, so Catrin Finch seems to converse with her instrument. In many of the variations, the 7th for example, one might say that the quality of the harp's clear tone surpasses that of the piano. Some of the variations are technically very difficult to play because of the nature of the instrument. Catrin Finch masters them all; an impressive recording.
