Johann Sebastian Bach: Goldberg Variations
Complete in María Martínez Ayerza’s arrangement for recorder quintet
Humour, emotion, order, gracefulness, power – nothing is strange to the Goldberg Variations! This well-known collection condenses the art of harpsichord playing into thirty-one wide-ranging pieces based upon a simple bass line. Beautiful arias, masterful canons, elegant dances and spectacular toccatas display the styles, forms and techniques available to professional keyboard players in Bach’s time.
