- Steven Devine (Harpsichord)
Notes & Reviews:
With some of the most ambitious compositions ever written for harpsichord, the 'Goldberg' variations by Bach are widely considered among the most commanding and inspired set of variations. "This disc is a wonderful collection of dance movements, interspersed with passionate cannons and virtuosic hand-crossing, all framed by a simple unpretentious Aria" says performer, Steven Devine
"He brings a scholarly authority to this pillar of the repertoire, offering in his sleeve notes many insights into Bach's thinking behind the 30 variations, an authority he matches with a masterly technique at the keyboard, turning this into a bravura display of the harpsichordist's art. Highly recommended." -The ObserverNotes & Reviews:
