2007 has been a banner year for Goldbergs; no less than five recorded versions of the piece had appeared by the end of July, including a digitally reinterpreted incarnation of Glenn Gould's famous 1955 recording and Wilhelm Middelschulte's bizarre, psychedelic 1924 transcription of the work for organ. In the face of such circumstances, no one would blame music critics for throwing up their hands and saying something like "enough already!" Nevertheless, thankfully the Goldberg Variations is not that kind of a piece, its appeal is both immutable and universal.

A familiar work with a different take: Martin Heini plays Bach's Goldberg Variations on the beautiful organ of Horw Church, Switzerland, along with three masterpieces written for organ, the Fantasie in G major, the Prelude and Fugue in D Minor and the great Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor.

The young pianist who blew everyone away at the GRAMMYs recorded Bach's Goldberg Variations as label debut. The Korean-born, US-trained pianist known simply as Ji is very much a classical musician for the 21st century. Having won the New York Philharmonic’s Young Artists Competition at the age of just 10, he went on to study at the prestigious Juilliard School. Described by the Chicago Tribune as “a gifted, sensitive young pianist who is clearly going places,” he has chosen Bach’s sublime Goldberg Variations for his debut on Warner Classics. “Classical music is never going away,” he says, “We live in very modern world, and it’s our job to live in the moment, but it’s also our job to respect and preserve tradition.”

The Goldberg Variations followed the first three parts of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Clavier-Übung. The title page presents the work as a ‘Keyboard exercise consisting of an Aria with diverse variations for harpsichord with two manuals…’ Forkel, in his biography of the composer, relates that these variations were composed at the request of the Count von Keyserlingk so that his harpsichordist, Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, might play a few of them during the insomnias that often disturbed the Count’s nights. But no concrete element has come down to us to verify Forkel’s remarks.

Camerata RCO performs the classical Bach Goldberg Variations which are arranged by Soviet-Russian born orchestrator-arranger Dmitry Sitkovetsky. The Bach Goldberg Variations, BWV 988, is a work written for harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach, consisting of an aria and a set of 30 variations, after which the aria is repeated. These important examples of the variations are named after Johan Gottlieb Goldberg, who may have been the first performer of the published work in 1741. The performers consisting of Annebeth Webb (violin), Jeroen Woudstra (viola) and Honorine Schaeffer (violoncello) are members of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.

In 1741, at the height of his creativity, Bach published one of his pioneering works under the modest title “Keyboard exercise comprising an ARIA with diverse variations for harpsichord with two manuals”. The title “Goldberg Variations” has attached itself to the work thanks to an unverifiable anecdote by Bach’s first biographer Johann Nikolaus Forkel. This story has often led people to the misapprehension that the phenomenal work was conceived to help Count Keyserlingk drop off to sleep.

Bach’s Goldberg Variations have gained iconic status. Ever since the legendary recording of Glenn Gould in 1955 it took the world by storm, and its popularity reaches well beyond the boundaries of traditional classical music audiences. Originally written for “Clavecimbel mit zwei Manuale” the perfect counterpoint and instrumental brilliance of the 30 variations invite for performances on other instruments, finding new facets and hidden treasures in this immensely rich music. This new recording presents a new arrangement for recorder consort, written by the ensemble Seldom Sene. Recorder Consort Seldom Sene has already recorded two highly praised albums for Brilliant Classics: Taracea (BC94871) and “El aire se serena” (BC95204).

Bachs Goldberg Variations with oriental roots Kemal Cem Yilmaz is the son of a Turkish immigrant. He lives as a freelance pianist and composer in Hanover and Istanbul. The Turkish pianist Idil Biret became his most important sponsor. Since childhood, the improvisation and composing of Yilmaz is just as self-evident as the work and performance of timeless works of piano literature. This publication shows his approach to Bachs Goldberg Variations, one of the most varied variations of music history: a theme of singular beauty, a simple bass line as the basis for 30 variation sets full of melodic imagination. Bach's cosmos leads into unimagined expanses through facets of human feeling.

Renowned for her exquisite interpretations of the keyboard masterpieces of Johann Sebastian Bach, Angela Hewitt has recorded several of his works for Hyperion not just once, but twice. Hewitt's 1999 recording of the Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 was enthusiastically received and reinforced her status as a leading artist with the label. This 2015 recording, like her return visit to Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, shows not so much a change in her overall approach but a thoughtful reappraisal of the finer points of touch, ornamentation, articulation, dynamics, timbre, and phrasing, which the space of 16 years has afforded her.
