J.S. Bach: Goldberg Variations / Steens

Album Summary

>Bach, Johann Sebastian : Goldberg Variations, BWV 988
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Although we have grown accustomed to the harpsichord as the Baroque keyboard instrument of choice, J.S. Bach preferred the smaller clavichord for home entertainment. Benjamin-Joseph Steens challenges our listening habits by performing the mythical Goldberg Variations on the clavichord, demonstrating that - despite its delicacy - the instrument does full justice to Bach's intimacy and emotion, as well as to the dazzling architecture of the music. The Belgium-born artist is a historical keyboard virtuoso who excels on the clavichord, harpsichord, and organ.
