Notes & Reviews:

This recording of the music of Michael Colgrass features his setting of Bach's Goldberg Variations.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
A big chunk of it is dedicated to his arrangement of 18 variations from Bach's Goldberg Variations*P for a small chamber ensemble (2003), inspired by Glenn Gould, a good friend of Colgrass's wife. The student performers are generally excellent. Zululand*P*(2011), for chorus and wind ensemble, celebrates the African tribe with a group of variations on "a short Zulu refrain." The 10 minute piece is entertaining and I'm sure the kids loved it. Ghost River (2010) is a quiet seven minute tone poem depicting a mysterious river, as the title implies. The program closes with Gotta Make Noise (2003), a little piece written for middle school kids.
