Customer Reviews

A new venue for a old masterpiece

Goldberg variation is one of Bach's towering works. This new version transcribed for a string trio is a novel approach to a time honored piece. The performance is great in the sense of "gold means". That is to say, the group takes a medium, balanced way between lean sound of Baroque method and over dramatized, excessive vibratos found on many recordings. If you admire Bach's work, this variation (played on string trio instead of a harpsichord of piano) from Goldberg variaton will surely bring you a lot of joy and musing.

Fresh take on one of my favorites

Well, how many versions of Goldberg does one need? One more, apparently. I'm sympathetic with the reviewer who suggested going back to the Gould, but must one stop there? Avoid the monotony of a knee-jerk Goldbergian monoculture! And although Gould is the default rendering, there are others on piano as well who deserve to be heard. Here, however, is the warmth and companionship of a string trio applied to this durable composition masterpiece. A wonderful interpretation and I recommend it.

Fantastic release

I love this piece and to hear it reinvented like this is just stunning. If you like Bach, like the Golderg Variations and want to hear it differently or just like great music, you need to get this album.
