Bach, Johann Sebastian

Goldberg Variations, BWV988


Davide Pozzi (harpsichord)


“Despite the numerous recordings and historical performances on the piano which have made the Goldberg Variations a heritage of our culture, it seems obvious that the instrument for which they were originally written for is to be favoured in order to offer a listening experience in which all the nuances of the work are completely restored. The possibilities of variation in sound and the choice of a historical tuning help to create a comprehensive framework for Bach’s intentions. For this CD, I have chosen a Werckmeister temperament to serve as a base and in which I have modified some fifths for the variations in minor. This results in a clear and relaxed light cast upon on the variations in major, whereas variations in minor, which only seem to tarry before flat signs and then modulate in distant keys, are given a much more animated, almost coarse slant.” – Davide Pozzi
