Pierre-Laurent Aimard piano
JS Bach Goldberg Variations
‘Aimard’s stupendous technique, energy and passion were wondrous to encounter.’ THE TIMES
‘Aimard expresses in the music an incredible human depth … With his blend of accuracy, emotion and style of touch, Aimard has created a new benchmark Bach recording.’ NDR RADIO
Aimard is ‘a master of the piano at work’ (Süddeutsche Zeitung) here scaling the peak of Baroque keyboard writing: JS Bach’s Goldberg Variations. The famous Aria provides the basis for 30 increasingly complex Variations. And when the Aria returns at the end in all its simplicity, the effect is magical.
