Album Summary

Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Goldberg Variations stand as one of the greatest keyboard works ever written. The work's universal musical language and distinct voicing has made it a popular subject for arrangement. Dmitry Sitkovetsky's trio arrangement was made in 1985 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Bach's birth. It is dedicated to the memory of Glenn Gould, whose celebrated 1955 Columbia recording of the work introduced a whole generation of listeners to this extraordinary music. Sitkovetsky's arrangement produces fascinating and delightful results, especially in this vigorous and sensitive performance from the Leopold String Trio.

"The advantage of strings over keyboard is the ability to sustain and swell a note. The Leopolds exploit this in Variation VI 'Canon at the 2nd', burning into the juicy abrasions, which on keyboard only die away. The beautifully played pizzicato Variation XIX sounds like the harpsichord's lute-stop which a piano cannot even dream of." -Classic FM

Gramophone Magazine
The Leopolds meet most of the challenges but rather float in and out of the grander scheme, thereby creating a performance of symmetrical, formalised units (all repeats applied). Many of the movements are strikingly effective and yet achieved without a particularly incremental sense of their place within an emotional map; it's mainly a case of responding afresh to each "new" event
