Artist: Sungyun Cho
Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach
Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” are based on a wonderful aria in an A/B structure, taken from the second Anna Magdalena notebook. The aria is then followed by 30 variations, built on the base line. Every third variation has a “canon” form, and every canon is based on a larger interval (starting from a unison, then a second, third etc.). The “Goldberg Variations” are one of the masterpieces of which every keyboard virtuoso wants to present his personal rendition. Sungyun Cho’s version is distinguished by her poetic approach, her flowing way of playing the piece, embellishing it in good taste and keeping a constant energy.
