BACH - Goldberg Variations arr. Sitkovetsky or...
“An Aria with Diverse Variations for the Harpsichord with Two Manuals, Composed for Music Lovers to Refresh their Spirits by Johann Sebastian Bach”
One of Bach’s most extraordinary creations, the Goldberg Variations, are about a journey. One idea, a single germ of an aria, blossoming into thirty stunningly original variations, performed back-to-back for a marathon 90 minutes. It’s music that is startlingly intimate, performed at the grandest scale. It’s one unforgettable, total, human experience.
Originally written for harpsichord, Manchester Collective will perform the variations in a version for string trio, in an evening of music that showcases their trademark disruptive approach to live performance.
Audiences will experience these Goldberg Variations in a unique, bespoke, created space. Let go, lie back, and lose yourself in a world of music.
