Daniel-Ben Pienaar, piano

J. S. Bach
Goldberg Variations
Fourteen Canons, BWV 1087, Bist du bei mir

Pianist Daniel-Ben Pienaar opened the eyes and ears of the classical music world with his release of Mozart's complete Piano Sonatas (AV 2209), earning plaudits such as Gramophone's Editor's Choice and CD of the Week from The Sunday Times (London). His recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations is destined to do the same. Pienaar's probing intellectual interpretation combines with his dazzling finger work and perfect pianistic touch, to deliver a classic recording of Bach's evergreen Goldbergs. As a bonus, he includes Fourteen Canons BWV 1087, based on the first eight bass notes of the Goldberg's Aria, and Bist du bei mir from Bach's Anna Magdalena Notebook, where the Aria from the Goldberg Variation first appeared.
