Lots of little bits

I've played these variations and have listened to several artists perform them. They are both wonderful and a pianistic beast at the same time. I have also listened to a considerable amount of Loussier with great appreciation. The task of jazzing up the Goldberg V. is huge and a little different for Loussier. He has only a minute or two to put his stamp on each variation. For a jazz artist, this short period of time leaves very little opportunity for improvised development -- it is like sitting in an excellent restaurant and eating only the appetizers -- and very small ones at that. I would have liked some meatier variations from time to time. If you are wiling to listen within this limitation, (and perhaps know the variations already), you will find this set challenging and rewarding.

Absolute delightful to your ears!

Great work! I downloaded the whole album :)
