Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Of all the many arrangements/transcriptions that have been made of Bach's Goldberg Variations, Sitkovetsky's version for string trio is perhaps the most logical, sensible, and musically satisfying... if you're interested in the full effect of Bach's work (not to mention completeness), including all of the first and second endings, presented in the larger structural context of the original, you shouldn't miss Rachlin, Imai, and Maisky's consistently compelling, tonally vibrant reading. The recording perspective is fairly close (you occasionally hear a vocal sound from one of the performers), but it's right for this music, serving to enhance our awareness of the dynamic interaction among the players. Recommended!" -Classics Today (9/9)
