Britten Sinfonia, Thomas Gould

Composed by: Bach, J.S.: Goldberg Variations (arr. Dmitry Sitkovetsky)

On this recording, the Britten Sinfonia’s Associate Leader Thomas Gould directs the ensemble in Dmitry Sitkovetsky’s beautifully realized and heartfelt arrangement for strings of Bach’s great keyboard work, The Goldberg Variations. Sitkovetsky penned the transcription in 1985 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Bach’s birth. It was inspired by Glenn Gould's remarkable 1981 recording of the work, and the transcription is dedicated to Gould's memory.
