About

"In the Goldberg Variations, Bach used the possibilities offered by the instrument's double keyboard. The work is totally suited to the harpsichord, whereas trying to play it on the piano is like attempting to square the circle." - Andreas Staier

Andreas Staier waited nearly a quarter of a century to play the Goldberg Variations in public: his first performance of it was in Montreal at the end of April 2000. This is his first, long-awaited recording and he
plays it on an Anthony Sidey harpsichord after Hass..

Undoubtedly one of the most prominent harpsichord and forte piano performers in the world, Andreas Staier embarked upon a solo career in 1986 and, since then, his indisputable musical mastery has made its mark on the interpretation of baroque, classical and romantic repertoire. His extensive discography has won great critical awards from the international press.

Includes a bonus DVD (25 minutes): Andreas Staier on the Goldbergs.

blessedly unreverential Bach, ebullient and extrovert, but also introspective and expressively searching when required.” - The Guardian
