Notes and Editorial Reviews

On this CD an accordion takes the listener along on a long, existential journey out of silence. Bach composed this "Aria with Diverse Variations" for Count Hermann Carl von Keyserlingk to be a little cheered up in his sleepless nights by harpsichordist Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, a pupil of Bach and in the service of the Count at that time. Whether this anecdote is true or not, today, more than 250 years after the Goldberg Variations were composed, they offer a listening experience with a shifting balance between inexhaustible external kinetic energy and complete inner piece.
