Monumental Goldberg Variations BWV 988 first time performed with flute , harpsichord and cello




JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 The Goldberg Variations is a monumental work, displaying superior compositional craft through a tight-knit formal framework. Every third variation is a canon at a progressively larger interval: Variation 3 at the unison, Variation 6 at the second, Variation 9 at the third, and so on. Since Bach composed the work for harpsichord, these knotty variations are usually written for two separate manuals on the instrument, thereby necessitating much hand-crossing and overlapping when played on the modern piano. Here for the fisrt time ever, will be listened with Flute, Harpsichord obbligatto and cello. Following the tradition of the Trio Sonata. There have always been conflicting or even contrasted opinions on the trancsription of the music of Bach.For years when compared , one encounters the different theses of the ” purists” , the ” philologists ” the ” universalists “, each deducing with reference to different elements, historical reasons, musical language and form.In reality, these different opinions on the transcriptions are influenced by tradition to the positions of the absolutists.This fusion of different theories originated from a state of fact which all almost recognize as legitimate . for instance they would almost all agree today for it to be ” bad taste ” to perform some of the transcritptions of solo violin or organ works , with orchestra (this was frequently done in the 30's and 50's ) ,while almost all consider it legitimate to perform the repertoire of the clavicembalistica bachiana on piano, or that for lute,violin or ‘cello on the guitar.In reality these traditions have legitimized the execution of certain repertoires of the orchestrate ” similar” for executive technique and instrumental possibility. There are many who think on the different transcriptions that have been made of the Art of Fugue. In this case the elements that have ” justified” a transcription, are of the vague indications of Bach speaking of the execution of the work. They can be found in the contrapuntal nature of the language connected with a general vision to speculate on some formal organization of the whole work even if , unfortunately, they are incomplete. According to this last conception, the transcription of the Goldberg Variations can be considered for flute , harpsichord and cello.This monumental work is often tied up to a virtuosic instrumental consideration for keyboard (harpsichord or piano).In reality , it is the virtuosic and intellectual nature of the work that originated in me the desire to transcribe the Variations for trio, together with the absolute contrapuntal aspect of the language that Bach has marvelously fused to the technical possibilities of the keyboard ; but they are excellently portrayed thanks to the polyphonic possibilities of the trio , and thus none of the polyphonic architecture Bachiana are sacrificed .Timbrewise, both instruments being more open and bealtiful, the flute with her expressiveness with the sound of the harpsichord and cello , and that constitutes a further interpretative meaning in comparison to the diverse nature of every variation. I hope that the sonorous enjoyment incurred by the listening will legitimate still further my work, giving to all the same feeling of fulfilment and peace, and also of the absolute amazement that I had on my first hearing, and the second and the third….Thank you for your help to made this project possible.
