BACH: Goldberg Variations BWV 988

Vesa-Matti Leppänen (violin/director), Stephen De Pledge (fortepiano), New Zealand Symphony Orchestra

Considered “hauntingly beautiful and a work of genius,” by NZSO Concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen, 'Goldberg Variations' was an artistic triumph for Bach. For three centuries the work has been arranged and interpreted for different instruments and ensembles. The NZSO plays JS Bach’s Goldberg Variations with the variations performed on a variety of instruments.
