BACH GOLDBERG VARIATIONS BMV 988 FOR PIANO

According to legend, this monument of keyboard literature was written for one of Bach's students, who played it to soothe and entertain his insomniac master. Starting the theme with a stately Aria, the "Goldbergs" travel through 30 variations, exploring thematic possibilities while showcasing the composer's brilliant sense of motivic possibilities.
