Bach Goldberg Variations, BWV 988

Published in 1741 the Goldberg Variations is one of the iconic works of classical keyboard music. Through a simple opening and thirty variations, Bach explores multiple ways of improvising on a musical theme, taking the listener on an endlessly fascinating and rewarding journey. Fresh from the release of his acclaimed Hyperion Records account of the work, which The Guardian described as ‘revelatory’, pianist Pavel Kolesnikov brings his unique interpretation of Bach’s masterpiece to Turner Sims.

'Just when you think there are enough recordings of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, here comes one that makes the music sound fresh off the page… Kolesnikov’s Goldbergs are softly spoken, but they are also extraordinarily eloquent.' The Guardian
