Bach: Goldberg Variations

Tatiana Nikolayeva (piano)


The ‘Aria with diverse variations’, Bach’s own title for his unprecedented ‘Goldberg Variations’, was written in 1742 for (Count) Herman Karl von Kayserling (1696–1764), the Russian ambassador in Dresden. It was catalogued BWV988 by Wolfgang Schmieder and first published by Balthasar and Schmid in Nürnberg.
