Bach: Goldberg Variations Rachel Fryer Piano + pre-concert talk
By Music at Saint Michael's
Pianist Rachel Fryer plays the Aria and 30 Variations that make up J.S. Bach's immense Goldberg Variations. Rachel will give a short talk about the work at 7:30pm. A drinks interval follows the talk. The Bach concert starts at around 8:15pm. This iconic piece of Bach has featured in a number of movies including 'The Silence Of The Lambs' and 'Quantum Of Solace'. First published in 1741 and a masterly demonstration of variation form. The plangent opening Aria theme inspires Bach's ever inventive mind to gradual, ever increasing invention; the dance rhythms of the suites, toccatas, French ouvertures and fugues.
