Album Summary

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

Notes & Reviews:

The Goldberg Variations invite performances on other instruments, finding new facets and hidden treasures in this immensely rich music. This recording brings together four performances on different instruments: the harpsichord, Steinway piano, organ and string trio - a fascinating journey of comparison, wonder, awe and joy!

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Yuan Sheng was born to a family of musicians in Beijing, and changed China's piano pedagogy forever by introducing a requirement for Bach as a professor at the Central Conservatory. I found his performance very satisfying on repeated hearings. Russian organist Elena Barshai offers one of the most revelatory performances I have ever heard. Her bright registrations and impeccable phrasing make for a clear performance with some beautiful and never overpowering sounds. The string trio consists of Gil Sharon, violin, Ron Ephrat, viola, and Alexander Hülshoff, cello. The group gives the quickest performance of the four, with fewer repeats than the others. I found both the 4CD Brilliant box set and the Denk at HB Direct for under $17.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2014
Fascinating renditions: as Bach intended for two-manual harpsichord; characterful if uneven on piano; using all the organ's resources; and with three strings clarifying the counterpoint.
