Book description
Live at the BBC Proms: Russian pianist Pavel Kolesnikov performs Bach’s ‘Goldberg’ Variations for solo piano.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall
Presented by Georgia Mann

JS Bach: Goldberg Variations

Pavel Kolesnikov, piano

‘Is it a coded message, an exercise in numerology? Is it a glorious attempt to marry old and new, or is it a nocturnal, private, fanciful tale?’ Russian-born Pavel Kolesnikov asked these questions and more when he took up the challenge of deciphering one of the undeniable peaks of the piano repertoire, Bach’s ‘Goldberg’ Variations. And, going by the judgement of The Guardian, which declared that Kolesnikov’s recent recording of the work ‘stands alone’ – the Russian-born pianist has found some answers. Bach’s beguiling sequence of a gentle Aria followed by 30 miniature variations was designed ‘for the refreshment of the spirits’, a mindful mix from the 18th century.

There will be no interval.
