Bach Goldberg Variations


Bach Goldberg Variations concert. Kit Armstrong plays the Goldberg Variations at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam in 2016. Also features earlier polyphonic variations by William Byrd (Hugh Aston's Ground), Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck (Six Variations on "Mein junges Leben hat ein End", Six Variations on "Erbarm dich mein, o Herre Gott"), and John Bull (Thirty Variations on the theme "Walsingham"). Directed for video by Dick Kuijs. Released 2017, disc has 5.0 dts-HD Master Audio sound. Grade: NA

This seems to be an interesting educational experience as well as a challenging concert. A performance of the Goldberg Variations usually runs about 50 minutes to an hour. So it appears Kit is trying to give you a good value with 2 hours of music.
